Tinnitus Research Initiative
The Tinnitus Research Initiative (TRI) is a project dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients who suffer from tinnitus and tinnitus-related disorders. Central to the mission of TRI is facilitating and supporting biomedical research which will lead to novel, effective therapies for the treatment of tinnitus.
Historically tinnitus research has been undertaken by individuals or small groups from a wide range of different disciplines and mostly working independently of each other. The activities of TRI are based on the belief that collaboration across disciplines is essential for better understanding of tinnitus and for the development of effective treatments.
What we're doing during Tinnitus Week
During the Tinnitus Week, we will release and promote five educational videos on tinnitus.
The main character of the videos is Dracula aka "Count Tumultu" - he is over 1000 years old and has had tinnitus for centuries. He explains tinnitus and its causes, reflects on the current advancements in tinnitus treatment and science and expresses his hope for the future.
The videos are part of the final action dissemination of the TINNET COST Action.
The Tinnitus Research Initiative (TRI) Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to reach for a better understanding of tinnitus with the goal of development of effective treatment for all kinds of tinnitus to the benefit of all tinnitus sufferers.
What We Do
- Support scientific and clinical research with a special focus on a collaborative multi-disciplinary and international approach
- Facilitate communication and information transfer among researchers and clinicians by establishing thematic workgroups, organizing meetings and providing a communication platform
- Educate professionals who deal with tinnitus by the edition of books, organization of meetings, development of diagnostic and therapeutic tools and guidelines
We committed ourselves to improving the quality of life for patients who suffer from tinnitus and tinnitus related disorders. Central to our mission is the facilitation and support of biomedical research which will lead to novel, effective therapies for the treatment of tinnitus.
