      I believe someone already wrote/contacted them regarding T research funding.

      I believe it was declined also the culprit of which can be somewhat found in How-We-Work: "For example, scientific research projects may be measured differently than efforts to expand vaccine coverage."

      I guess we could make a suggestion that T is a nasty bugger :p.

      @Dutchy ya T is a bugger. I was ready to write an email to the foundation but it would of been jibberish to the person that reads it.. haha. Still would be worth it if someone could draft a nice letter though. Wouldn't hurt sending one again... I guess.

      Should ask Bill Gates about it when he does one of those AMAs on Reddit. Though, it's hard to get anyone to care about tinnitus unless they suffer from it themselves.

      Just saw this today which is why I am checking in with TinnitusTalk on this fine Thursday evening:

      www.gatesnotes.com/About-Bill-Gates/Accelerating-Innovation

      The Bill Gates Foundation has been mentioned a number of times in the past (in various threads) here on TinnitusTalk. In the article above, Mr. Gates outlines four focus areas that he sees as important for any future (political) leadership to "manage". Two of these focus areas include disease - with one especially referring to degenerative neurological disease. This does not include tinnitus per se, but it is nonetheless interesting that diseases are so high on his list (not that I disagree with the list).

      I used to think that doctors were the most important asset to the field of medicine. Then I realized that plain common sense is even more important.

      Seems like the only route is making the American big pharma industry see how profitable a viable T medication would be. There is so many drugs that seem to help people lower their T (like benzos for some), it just seems like it wouldn't be too difficult to study this and find a solution for a company money-driven enough.
