Description

Manchester’s Hearing Health research is benefiting as part of a £28.5m investment through the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). The BRC’s Hearing Health research programme spans prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. It will improve the lives of children and adults by preventing potentially devastating congenital and acquired deafness, diagnosing acquired deficits and developing new treatments.
As well as learning more about Manchester’s Hearing Health research programmes, delegates were able to explore opportunities for collaboration and help to shape Manchester’s development of the UK’s only Hearing Device Research Centre.
The event included presentations from eminent audiology and hearing research staff including Professor Harvey Dillon, Professor David Moore (former director of the MRC Institute of Hearing Research), Professor Cynthia Morton and Dr Michael Stone (formerly at University of Cambridge).
