On 6th November 2015 USAIS held a scientific conference on ‘The Future of Auditory Implants’ at Chilworth Manor Hotel. The conference brought together speakers and delegates from all over the world to discuss research and innovation into the future of implantable devices for hearing and balance disorders. Topics included middle ear implants; bone anchored hearing aids, vestibular implantation and many more. The conference provided an opportunity to bridge the gap between research and practice bringing together academics, consultants and other professionals. There were plenty of opportunities for stakeholders to build networks and collaborate on projects.
“Really good day day. Nice balance of presentations with time for discussion. Good breadth of subjects” – Delegate
“Good overview of current developments in the field” – Delegate
“There appears to be a lot of useful overlap between our work and it would be good to explore the potential for future collaboration” – Speaker
This international conference is part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the centre and is both a celebration of the past achievements whilst also an appreciation of how much more can be achieved in the future. Watch this space!
