On Wednesday 11 October 2017, the Hearing Health Research Theme of the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre https://www.manchesterbrc.nihr.ac.uk/ will be launched at a showcase in collaboration with a NW regional meeting of the British Academy of Audiology and the British Society of Audiology. The event will be held at Manchester Museum, the University of Manchester and will include presentations from a variety of audiology and hearing research staff in the north-west including Professor Harvey Dillon (former director of NAL), Professor David Moore (former director of the MRC Institute of Hearing Research), Professor Cynthia Morton (auditory geneticist, Harvard University) and Dr Michael Stone (formerly at University of Cambridge). Professor Kevin J Munro will provide information on the hearing research that will be funded by the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre and how this will link to clinical practice in the NW. It is expected that hearing charities and industry will also be present and involved in the day.
