NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre

NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit was established in 2008 as part of the National Institute for Health Research. It is the only biomedical research unit funded to pursue translational research in deafness and hearing problems. It is based on a partnership between the University of Nottingham, Nottingham University Hospitals Trust and the Medical Research Council Institute of Hearing Research.

Our research programme focuses on seven broad areas:

Child & Family
Habilitation for Hearing Loss
Internet Research Portal
Perception and Performance

Principled Design of Game-based Auditory Learning Environments
Reducing Listening Effort
Tinnitus

One of the unique strengths of NBRUH lies in its commitment to the "and back again" part of the translational mantra "from bench to bedside and back again". We believe that scientists need to appreciate what hearing impairments mean, both from the standpoint of the patient and the clinician in order to make good progress in the field. The research programme of NBRUH builds on established programmes of research and intervention using hearing instruments, auditory learning and the auditory brain to offer further development of seven broad research themes.

"Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is delighted to be working in partnership with the University of Nottingham and the MRC to support the National Biomedical Research Unit in Hearing. It is an exciting, important endeavour that will further improve services for patients and their families locally, nationally and internationally. It is truly inspiring work being taken forward by a truly inspiring team."
