Description

The House Research Institute (formerly House Ear Institute) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with hearing loss and related disorders through scientific research, patient care, and the sharing of knowledge. Institute scientists investigate hearing loss and ear disease at the cellular, molecular and genetic levels, as well as the complex neurological interactions between the auditory system and brain. The researchers also study ways to improve auditory implants, diagnostics, clinical treatments and intervention methods. Outreach programs for the public serve people with hearing loss and related disorders as well as offer information about general hearing health and hearing conservation.
