      We fund research into hearing loss and tinnitus to speed up the discovery and development of new medical treatments to protect and restore hearing, improve diagnosis of hearing loss, improve medical devices for hearing, and silence tinnitus, in line with our Biomedical Research Strategy.

      We offer funding to support discovery and translational research and to build research capacity through a number of grant schemes.
