Announcing the 2014 RFP: Neurodegeneration
During the last five years, our understanding of the pathophysiology of hearing loss has been substantially enhanced, and challenged, by the discovery of auditory neuronal damage, which does not always manifest in the audiogram. This is a very interesting new area of research, and this year the IRC is requesting proposals within the topic of Neurodegeneration: Perceptual Consequences and Quantification in Human Subjects. The $300,000 grant is open to research labs around the world.
Applications are available on the IRC website. The deadline for proposals is August 15, 2014, and decisions will be announced by December 31, 2014.
