NIHR UCLH BRC grant includes Deafness and Hearing research theme for the first time

16 September 2016

We are delighted to announce that the recent the NIHR UCLH Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) application was successful (award of over £111M) and importantly this comprehensive application included a Deafness and Hearing research theme.

This is the first time that the EI/RNTNEH has been included in the NIHR UCLH BRC bid (which occurs on a 5 year basis).  The Deafness and Hearing theme was led by Anne Schilder and included the following ‘team’:   Shak Saeed, Sally Dawson, Debi Vickers, Jen Linden, Jonathan Gale, Elena Bedisti and Helen Blackshaw.

Congratulations to all of those members – particularly to Anne and to Helen for their efforts.
