Otology Research Fund

The Otology Research Fund, maintained by the the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the School of Medicine, supports research programs related specifically to diseases of the ear. The Department has extensive clinical and basic science research in this field.

How can you help?

Gifts to the Otology Research Fund help support research in a variety of ear-related subjects, which include genetic hearing loss, including that associated with visual and balance disorders, noise-induced hearing loss, pulsatile tinnitus and non-rhythmic tinnitus. Ongoing clinical and translational studies for pulsatile tinnitus include research directed towards understanding sigmoid sinus wall anomalies, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, transverse sinus stenosis, and other venous causes of pulsatile tinnitus. These include developing models for reproduction and modulation of pulsatile tinnitus, radiographic imaging techniques, and surgical interventions.
