Large Research Grant programme

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, there is up to £125,000 available to spend on a research project (or projects) that best meet our agreed research priorities. This is the largest grant funding round ever announced by the BTA.

Who is eligible to apply for these grants?

Our Large Research Grant programme will be open to researchers based worldwide, in recognition of the collaborative and international nature of tinnitus research.

Our research priorities

From our work developing the Tinnitus Cure Map, we have been able to identify potential research areas and gaps. From this learning, we have determined the following research priorities:

  • Identification of tinnitus biomarker(s)
  • Development of reliable objective measure(s) of tinnitus
  • A better understanding of animal models of tinnitus and their relevance to human tinnitus research
  • Recognition that tinnitus is a heterogeneous condition and development of strategies to manage that heterogeneity in a research environment
  • Identification of sub-types of tinnitus.
