MÉNIÈRE'S DISEASE GRANTS
Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) funds research focused on advancing our understanding of Ménière's disease, the inner ear and balance disorder. This research will significantly advance our understanding of disease mechanisms, or diagnosis and treatment, of Ménière's disease.
The MDG program is a collaborative and highly competitive program. Our intent is to fund researchers and bring experts together to share their work and ideas for new projects.
Ménière’s disease is a chronic vestibular (inner ear) disorder. The inner ear influences both hearing and balance. It is named for the French doctor Prosper Ménière, who, in 1861, first identified and described the symptoms of the medical condition that now bears his name. These symptoms include fluctuating hearing loss, episodic vertigo, a sensation of ear fullness, and tinnitus.
