The 11th International Tinnitus Research Initiative Conference will be taking place in Regensburg from March 14-16, 2018 in co-operation with the European Cost TINNET Action.
About 300 international researchers, scientists and clinicians are expected to join this who-is-who of the wide interdisciplinary field of tinnitus research.
“Disruptive Innovations in Tinnitus” is the frame for presentations of the breaking outcomes in tinnitus research of the last years. There will be an industrial exhibition giving the chance to leading companies in hearing and tinnitus to present their latest trends and products.
The conference is internationally renowned in the medical field and provides a good platform to swap information and knowledge, discuss different solutions and allow networking with other researchers.
Before the conference officially starts there is a young academics conference for upcoming tinnitus researchers organized by the “European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research”(ESIT), a European research project coordinated from Regensburg University.
A great part in the aimed education of 15 PhD students is the early networking and inclusion in the international tinnitus researching community. This new era of researchers shall use the new research practices, do the first genetic studies on tinnitus and create a great pan-european database for tinnitus patients to goal in an individualized and evidence-based tinnitus treatment.
Twelve years after its foundation the Tinnitus Research Initiative Foundation is now back at it roots. The initial goal was founded of leading researchers and scientist on the field of tinnitus aiming to develop effective treatments for the different types of tinnitus.
In Europe about 40 Million people suffer from chronic tinnitus, means the ongoing subjective perception of noise or sound in the ear without an external source of sound.
The tinnitus research has come far in twelve years of TRI action, more researchers and scientist are working on this issue, outcomes and findings in diagnosis and therapy can be shown and a strong international network has been built. Nevertheless a unique cure for tinnitus and its subtypes has not been found yet.
The International Tinnitus Conference is supported – amongst others – by the Regensburger Universitaetsstiftung Hans Vielberth and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

Together with their colleagues from the University of Würzburg, physicists from the group of Professor Alexander Szameit at the University of Rostock have devised a “funnel” for photons. Their discovery was recently published in the renowned journal Science and holds great promise for novel ultra-sensitive detectors as well as innovative applications in telecommunications and information processing.
The quantum-optical properties of light and its interaction with matter has fascinated the Rostock professor Alexander Szameit since College.
Researchers at the University of Zurich show that different stem cell populations are innervated in distinct ways. Innervation may therefore be crucial for proper tissue regeneration. They also demonstrate that cancer stem cells likewise establish contacts with nerves. Targeting tumour innervation could thus lead to new cancer therapies.
Stem cells can generate a variety of specific tissues and are increasingly used for clinical applications such as the replacement of bone or cartilage....
