Lilian today visited the Medical Research Council's (MRC) Institute of Hearing Research.
The MRC Institute of Hearing Research (IHR) is a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research in hearing and hearing disorders, conducting a full range of auditory science from state-of-the-art basic research into the brain mechanisms of hearing to new advances in the measurement, understanding, and interventions for hearing loss.
IHR is one of only a handful of centres around the world that delivers interdisciplinary research on hearing, covering a wide portfolio of auditory science from fundamental neuroanatomy to the quality of life experienced by a patient. It is one of the largest UK investments in hearing science, employing senior staff who are experts in neuroscience, psychology, acoustics, and medicine.
Meeting with Professor of Hearing Science and Director, Michael Akeroyd, Lilian was given a tour of the institute's facilities and received a briefing on the world-leading research on hearing and hearing disorders being conducted at the centre.
