International Tinnitus Conference of the Tinnitus Research Initiative in Regensburg

13.03.2018

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.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
