Hearing Research Laboratory

The Hearing Research Laboratory is a clinically directed research collaboration between the ARTORG Center and the Department of Otolaryngology, Inselspital (Bern University Hospital). Our multidisciplinary team combines the expertise of engineers, audiologists, surgeons and physicists. Our goal is to develop novel medical devices and technology to help hearing-impaired persons and to support clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of inner ear disorders. The range of research activities of our group includes psychoacoustic experiments, anatomical and electrophysiological studies, the design and implementation of clinically applicable software and devices, and the conduct of observational studies and clinical trials. To promote sustainable research progress, our team members actively collaborate with leading medical, academic and industrial partners in hearing research.
