At the forthcoming the forthcoming Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) Mid-Winter Meeting in San Jose, California, the BTA is partnering with our colleagues from the American Tinnitus Association (ATA) to host a joint networking event. We are aiming to bring together some of the world’s leading researchers and highlight the breadth of opportunities in the field for partnership working, innovative multi-disciplinary projects and the potential for new insights.

We are excited to be showcasing recent developments in tinnitus research to a new audience. There has been a real focus recently on collaborative projects in the field, which have led to new knowledge and a deeper understanding of the condition. We want to bring even more people together to start even more discussions and to spark off each other, which could really push forward progress towards a cure.

The ARO Mid-Winter meeting is the premier basic science meeting for hearing and balance researchers. Torryn Brazell (the CEO of the ATA) and I are really keen to bring researchers together to facilitate the kind of discussions and partnerships that we know could bring huge benefits to the millions of people currently living with tinnitus.

The joint BTA/ATA meeting will be held on Saturday 25 January 2020 during the ARO 43rd Annual Mid-Winter Meeting.

The ATA promotes synergy between dedicated medical professionals and researchers within the tinnitus community. With our colleagues at the BTA, we want to extend this community to bring in new groups, who will bring with them new insight and experiences - Torryn Brazell, ATA
