Emerging Research Grants
Since our inception in 1958, Hearing Health Foundation has awarded nearly $30 million through more than 2,000 grants to hearing and balance research. This money has led to dramatic innovations that increase options for those living with hearing loss, as well as protecting those at risk. With the potential for hearing restoration through regeneration biology, the scope of Hearing Health Foundation-funded research has expanded enormously.
 
Hearing Health Foundation supports research in the following areas for the 2016 cycle:
  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder: Research that will increase our understanding of the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), an umbrella term for a variety of disorders that affect the way the brain processes auditory information.
     
  • Hyperacusis: Research that will increase our understanding of the mechanisms, causes, diagnosis, and treatments of hyperacusis and severe forms of loudness intolerance (e.g.,animal models, brain imaging, biomarkers, electrophysiology). Research that explores distinctions between hyperacusis and tinnitus is of special interest.
     
  • Meniere's Disease: Research that will increase our understanding of the inner ear and balance disorder Meniere's disease.
     
  • Tinnitus: Research that will increase our understanding of the mechanisms, causes, diagnosis, and treatment of tinnitus. Projects investigating the prevention, treatment, and/or alleviating tinnitus are encouraged to apply.
     
  • Stria: Research that will increase our understanding of strial atrophy and/or development of the stria.
 
Research projects outside of these topic areas cannot be considered.
