Center for Hearing and Deafness - University at Buffalo Skip to Content

Welcome to the Center for Hearing and Deafness

Working Toward a Cure for Hearing Disorders

The State University of New York at Buffalo established the Center for Hearing and Deafness to focus the clinical and research skills of its members on the problems of hearing loss. Drawing upon the university’s many resources, as well as its experts in anatomy, audiology, biophysics, engineering, otolaryngology, pediatrics, physiology, pharmacology, and psychology, the Center facilitates the transfer of important basic science results into the clinical environment by regularly hosting interdisciplinary seminars and workshops for students, clinicians, and scientists involved in relevant disciplines.

The Center also seeks to develop cooperative working relationships with businesses and industries involved in hearing-related activities, such as: hosting the WNY Tinnitus Support Group, testing and evaluating drugs used to treat hearing loss, developing new scientific and clinical instrumentation, and assessing industrial hearing loss and noise regulations. In addition, the Center provides valuable training opportunities for physicians, engineers, and allied health professionals.
