Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) is pleased to present our Emerging Research Grants (ERG) awardees for the 2018 project cycle.
15 individuals at various institutions nationwide—including Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, University of Minnesota, and the National Cancer Institute—will conduct innovative research in the following topic areas:
- Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)
- General Hearing Health
- Hearing Loss in Children
- Usher Syndrome
Our grantees’ research investigations seek to solve specific auditory and vestibular problems such as declines in complex sound processing in age-related hearing loss (presbycusis), ototoxicity caused by the life-saving chemotherapy drug cisplatin, and noise-induced hearing loss.
HHF looks forward to the advancements that will come about from these promising scientific endeavors. The foundation owes many thanks to the General Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons International, Cochlear, Hyperacusis Research, the Les Paul Foundation, and several generous, anonymous donors who have collectively empowered this important work.
We are currently planning for our 2019 ERG grant cycle, for which applications will open September 1. Learn more about the application process.
