In light of the global health crisis regarding Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we want to inform you on our latest updates.

We are monitoring the current situation as it changes on a daily basis, staying up-to-date on any and all advisories from government authorities as well as announcements from the World Health Organization.

Currently, there is no plan to interrupt the conference schedule, as Canada is not under any travel advisory and there have only been a few isolated cases reported in the country.
TRI and the TRI-2020 organizers are weighing all options for the best course of action. An announcement will be made should a decision that best protects our participants’ interests and health concerns leads us to a change in conference status.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

 

Uniti Logo 2019 4cThe European Union is funding another project to research new treatment methods for chronic tinnitus. Project leader is PD. Dr. Winfried Schlee, staff member at the Tinnitus Centre and Centre for Neuromodulation of the University of Regensburg at the Bezirksklinikum.

The research project "UNITI" (Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients, EU-Action no. 848261) is the largest European clinical study on tinnitus to date. The aim is to find out which patient groups benefit most from which treatment methods. The data from the clinical trial will be combined with genetic data, medical and audiological studies and existing databases. A computer model will then recommend the best possible therapy.

UNITI (EU Action no. 848261) will run for three years and the multicentre study is scheduled to start in early 2021.

Study sites are Regensburg and Berlin (Germany), Leuven (Belgium), Granada (Spain) and Athens (Greece).

More information on UNITI will soon be available at https://uniti.tinnitusresearch.net

Larry Roberts 2015Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our close friend and outstanding scientist Larry Robert has died last week after a short, serious illness at the age of 81.

Larry has been an eminent scientist in the tinnitus field and part of the TRI family from the very beginning. Larry has been a team-worker, his work was patient-centered and he both inspired and supported young researchers.

At many of our international tinnitus congresses, Larry was a very welcome guest and impressive speaker, even after his retirement, whose expertise in the field of neuroplasticity was internationally recognized.

We owe Larry a lot. His calm, level-headed manner and ability to bring complex issues to the point will always be remembered. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife Marion and his two daughters. The tinnitus community has lost an outstanding scientist - and we have lost a warm-hearted, cosmopolitan friend.

Dear Larry, we keep you in our memories and will miss your joyful presence.

 

Formal obituary prepared by Larry's family
