Research & Development
Research is critical to innovation and progress in the fields of audiology, otolaryngology and hearing health. The Hearing Center of Excellence (HCE) seeks to promote and enhance research processes and eliminate the information stovepipes that prevent organizations from working together on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of hearing loss and auditory injury.
The pages in this Research section contain tools, educational resources, funding opportunities, including government grants and awards, and other information designed to empower visitors to learn more about the entire end-to-end research process, from securing funding to gaining approval from an IRB, to effectively managing a research grant program.
The section also provides additional information on the HCE’s Collaborative Research Network, which includes laboratories, medical treatment facilities, DOD CoEs and other participating organizations working together to improve clinical care, service and treatment delivery, processes and research. These organizations offer valuable expertise, capabilities and resources that could serve to benefit one another as well as the HCE’s overall mission. Within the research section, one can browse a listing of network members, including links to their websites and/or full descriptions of their current mission objectives, priorities and equipment.
The training and tools contained herein will benefit audiologists, administrators, investigators, research associates, and any other interested individuals working in the hearing or balance sciences.
