European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT)

ESIT PhD student Roshni Biswas, researching at Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri Milano (Italy) and the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom) recently presented some of her findings on tinnitus epidemiology through a talk

"Assessment of pan-European prevalence of tinnitus using a standardised set of questions accross countries"

at the 2019 Basic Auditory Science Meeting in London.

Congratulations from the whole ESIT team on your outstanding presentation and your ongoing work!

ESIT supervisor Prof. Tobias Kleinjung, University Hospital Zurich, and ESIT training staff member Dr. Patrick Neff, Swiss National Science Foundation fellow, recently featured in the article "Phantom im Ohr" (German for "phantom in the ear") in the Swiss newspaper Basler Zeitung, giving an overview over the condition of tinnitus, and highlighting the newest trends in therapy (e.g. neurofeedback) and research.

Congratulations from the ESIT team!

In their yearly report on the period 2017/2018, the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR), a public-private partnership research support agency initiated by the Bavarian government to guide and assist researchers, universities and other scientific institutions with funding possibilities and applications, published a report on ESIT that highlights our interdisciplinary approach to training highly educated and motivated PhD students in the relevant area of tinnitus, affecting up 10 % of the European adult population:

The whole publication and the article on ESIT (p. 26, in German) can be accessed using this link or by clicking on the image below.

We'd like to express our utmost appreciation of BayFOR's tremendous support throughout the whole duration of ESIT in all project areas, without which ESIT probably would not have been possible!
