      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Syringing
      I don't know much about this, but the project website is:
      http://www.nanoear.org/index.php

      It's important to remember that fixing/generating hair cells doesn't necessarily fix tinnitus.

      As you know, sometimes even if the auditory nerve is surgically cut, the tinnitus still remains.

      But for some types of tinnitus this kind of advancement in regenerating hair cells etc could be the "cure" or at least an alleviation.

      Fascinating stuff anyways, the future looks promising.
