We are working on world-class hearing research with the sole aim of improving the quality of life of people who are impacted by hearing loss and ear disease.
Our research incorporates laboratory and population-based studies with clinical research investigating hearing outcomes, service delivery, and involvement in clinical trials.
Our researchers and clinicians work very closely together. Therefore, our research outcomes can be seamlessly and rapidly implemented into our clinics, allowing us to provide evidence-based, patient-centred hearing care for all our clients.
We cannot carry out this research without the invaluable support of our volunteers and community supporters. If you are interested in becoming part of the solution for improved hearing and ear health you can do this in several ways:
- Tick “yes” to being contacted for research opportunities on the details form at your next clinical appointment
- Participate in research projects when there is a call
- Participate in community focus groups and advisory boards
- Become a community advocate for our research
- Volunteer your skills to help our researchers
- Donate to our research
If you are interested in any of these options, please complete the form below and we will be in touch.
You can make a valuable contribution to ear and hearing research by sharing your experience, time and knowledge with our researchers.
Current research projects & clinical trials
HearCog Clinical Trial
Dr Dona Jayakody and the Australian Cognition and Hearing Loss project team are recruiting participants for this study.
We are asking the question, what happens when we treat hearing loss with hearing aids? We are researching whether we can delay or arrest dementia by treating hearing loss with hearing aids.
If you are 70+ years old and think you have hearing loss please get in contact with Ina Dorsheimer on 0409 623 367 to register your interest.

Finding treatments for today and cures for tomorrow
We bring together some of the most influential academics and clinicians in the world, all with a shared passion to understand hearing, develop and implement new treatments for ear and hearing disorders and a shared goal to cure hearing loss.
Our science continues to set best practice with a fully integrated model of clinical practice and research activities; allowing us to translate our knowledge into tangible outcomes for our community and beyond.
