New research partnership to tackle hearing loss

An innovative new partnership between Ear Science Institute Australia and National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL) will see hearing researchers from across Australia united with the shared goal of improving treatments for millions dealing with hearing issues.

“This powerful partnership with the Ear Science Institute Australia brings together many of the brightest and most ambitious hearing researchers in Australia,” said National Acoustics Laboratories Director, Brent Edwards.

“All with the shared vision of having a significant impact on hearing healthcare to improve the lives of people with hearing difficulty everywhere.”

Hearing loss is one of the most common health concerns across the world, and by 2050, it’s expected almost 2.5 billion people will have some degree of hearing impairment.

It’s hoped the partnership between Ear Science and NAL will translate into significant life improvements for many with hearing loss, both locally and globally.

By integrating their extensive resources and data sets, the two organisations will work together to change the lives of people with hearing loss.

Ear Science Institute Australia is a globally recognised for-purpose organisation and centre of excellence that aligns hearing science, medicine, and clinical teams to develop innovative treatments for ear and hearing disorders, with the goal of eventually finding a cure for hearing loss.

Ear Science focusses on improving the quality of hearing health by prioritising the translation of its work from scientific research to the patient.

“As we look towards the next era in hearing treatment, this meaningful partnership with National Acoustics Laboratories will bring new opportunities for knowledge sharing, leading to improved access, advanced solutions and better individual hearing care for people everywhere,” said Ear Science CEO, Sandra Bellekom.
