SURGICAL APPROACHES TO IMPROVING EAR HEALTH AND HEARING
Grant number: 1078673 | Funding period: 2015 - 2019
My vision is to advance ear and hearing health all Australians across three areas. The first is to ensure that patients receiving hearing-restoration operations with cochlear prostheses today have ears that will be ready to receive tomorrows molecular therapies. The second is a clinical trial to establish how best to treat Indigenous children burdened with otitis media and hearing loss. The third seeks to improve the quality of training in ear surgery through simulation.
