Why Is There No Cure For Tinnitus?

BSHAA WEBINAR WITH PROF DAVID BAGULEY

Prof David Baguley joined us for this webinar on Monday 27 July 2020. He discussed his research project - 'Why is there no cure for tinnitus?' - before taking part in a Q&A session with BSHAA Vice President Raul Garcia-Medina.

 

AGENDA

Prof David Baguley on 'Why is there no cure for tinnitus?'

The research project looked at the many barriers to the development of a cure for tinnitus so that people could be interested, inspired and engaged and make some real progress in the area. Prof Baguley's fellow authors on the project were ear surgeon Don McFerran; Ralph Holme, director of research at Action on Hearing Loss; the chief executive of the British Tinnitus Association, David Stockdale; and Charles Larg, CEO of pharmaceutical company Autifony Therapeutics.

Prof Baguley says: "It's been really heartening to see tens of thousands of people accessing the research, but disheartening to see how far research activity for tinnitus lags behind conditions such as depression and anxiety."
