      Our research priorities

      From our work developing the Tinnitus Cure Map, we have been able to identify potential research areas and gaps. From this learning, we have determined the following research priorities:
      • Identification of tinnitus biomarker(s)
      • Development of reliable objective measure(s) of tinnitus
      • A better understanding of animal models of tinnitus and their relevance to human tinnitus research
      • Recognition that tinnitus is a heterogeneous condition and development of strategies to manage that heterogeneity in a research environment
      • Identification of sub-types of tinnitus

      I really like the BTA’s current trajectory and it’s very much in line with what David Stockdale promised last year; that is more cure-focussed initiatives.

      I think they finally realised that nobody is interested in further CBT and other behavioural type studies considering there’s already a wealth of information out there. I hope they maintain their current course.

      I completed this survey but since I am neither a BTA member, nor an UK citizen (I specified France as ZIP Code), I doubt I would be selected.

      What would you want from a pill for tinnitus?

      Researchers at @UCLEarInstitute want to know what your expectations would be. Find out more about the study and link to the survey here.

      Please note that the team are NOT developing a drug themselves.

      Surprisingly, I have been selected. I just received the first applications to comment. I signed an NDA so I will not be allowed to tell you more.
