Hearing Health Foundation's Hearing Restoration Project (HRP) scientist, Stefan Heller, was published in Cell Reports on June 9, 2015. Heller's lab identified patterns of gene expression that my determine whether the ear's inner pillar cells can give rise to new hair cells, which are key to hearing. This discovery could lead to new ways of evaluating, in animal models, experimental drug treatments intended to prevent hearing loss or restore hearing. Learn more about the HRPHeller's research and the path to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus.
 
 
Supporters Adam and Nada Mussomeli hosted an intimate fundraiserfeaturing the artwork of their incredibly talented son Alex (age 11). Alex has sensorineural hearing loss and uses a hearing aid in his left ear and a cochlear implant in his right ear. Alex dreams of the day when HHF's Hearing Restoration Project finds a cure.
 
Alex’s paintings were sold with all the proceeds going to hearing research. HHF thanks Alex, Adam and Nada Mussomeli, and the event’s attendees for their generosity. Interested in planning a fundraiser? Email us at fundraise@hhf.org
 
Alex is a finalist in 2016 Oticon Focus on People Awards Student Catagory.

The trinity of protection: WALK away from loud sounds, BLOCK loud sounds with ear protection, and TURN the volume down (when you can control it). These simple actions can have a major impact on your long-term hearing health.
 
 
Many profoundly deaf people wearing cochlear implants (CIs) still face challenges in everyday situations, such as understanding conversations in noise. Even with CIs in both ears, they have difficulty making full use of subtle differences in the sounds reaching the two ears to identify where the sound is coming from. This problem is especially acute at the high stimulation rates used in clinical CI processors.
