Project Details


The Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) has an internationally recognised multi-million pound hearing research programme. We receive research funding from the Department of Health, UK research councils, industrial partners and charities.

We have a multidisciplinary research team which includes expertise in psychophysics, electrophysiology, neuro-imaging, signal processing, medicine, cognitive psychology and genetics. The group also has collaborative links across the university with Schools of Engineering, Social Sciences, and Medicine.

Our research underpins, and is informed by, our leading role in audiology education and audiological service delivery in the UK. Our group is currently the lead group in the UK for research that leads to improved services for hearing impaired people. Examples of this include development and implementation of universal newborn hearing screening and the modernisation of hearing aid services in the NHS. This is a unique and valuable aspect of our work, as the resultant connections and access to services position us for effective clinical and translational research.
