IHR Scottish Section at the NHS Research Scotland annual conference

On Wednesday 28th October a team from the IHR Scottish Section attended the NHS Research Scotland annual conference at the newly opened Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. IHR had three posters on display regarding tinnitus maskers, high-intelligibility broadcast streams & intervention benefit. The conference was a great opportunity to participate in discussion about the opportunities and challenges for clinical research in Scotland and to further disseminate the good work going on at IHR while strengthening links with funders and collaborators.

Summer Scientists

Child playing

We've just finished a very successful week at Nottingham University's Summer Scientist Week. In total 325 future scientists aged 4-12 years played our experimental games "Houston, we have a problem!", "Listen Up" and "Beat the Noise". Thank you to all for participating, and to Johanna Barry, Hannah Stewart, Aina Casaponsa and Hettie Roebuck at IHR and Elinor Cheason at The University of Nottingham for all their hard work in designing and running the experiments.
