We realised that, by combining our resources, we could make a real difference to the quality and quantity of tinnitus research being carried out in the UK, and radically improve the quality of service offered to tinnitus sufferers.”ATR will now be based in London and its Nottingham office will close. Apart from major research programmes, Deafness Research UK offers an information service which offers advice and support to tinnitus sufferers, a research advisory panel and access to some of the world’s leading tinnitus scientists and doctors.The merger will mean that there is now a single, dedicated national research effort and support network aimed at funding research to better understand tinnitus. It will mean increased quality and quantity of research programmes, more scientific and focused monitoring and evaluation of research programmes and increased leverage to attract further funding for tinnitus research.www.deafnessresearch.org.uk Deafness and tinnitus research charities mergecenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img
