“I think tinnitus research is important because it deals with a previously incurable impairment of an important sensory organ and related problems.

I think education about tinnitus and hearing protection is important because we live in a world of increasing noise pollution and more and more people, especially young people, are suffering permanent damage for life from acoustic overexposure, the scope of which they can’t comprehend at their age.”
