Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients - UNITI

This year's International Tinnitus Awareness Week #TinnitusWeek currently takes place, almost fully virtual, but with an even greater number of partners than ever before!
Under the motto #ThisIsMySilence, many organisations - most prominently the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) - and countless individuals worldwide share their experiences with tinnitus, and express what needs to be done from their point of view.

On our part, with our EU funded research, we aim at a Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients (UNITI). Currently, preparations for the UNITI tinnitus clinical trial - one of the largest ever - are in the later stages. Stay tuned for updates!

All UNITI wishes all of you and your loved ones the Best, Happiest, and Healthiest 2021!
For us, 2021 will bring many exciting developments, especially the start of our large clinical trial on tinnitus, with clinical centres in Regensburg (Germany), Berlin (Germany), Granada (Spain), Athens (Greece) and Leuven (Belgium).

The UNITI consortium is glad and thankful to report that on December 15, 2020, Ronny Hannemann (right) of WSA/Sivantos (also member of the UNITI Advisory Board) handed over a first delivery of 220 (of 400) Signia Pure 312 X hearing aids to UNITI Project Coordinator Winfried Schlee (left) and ENT colleagues Veronika Vielsmeier and Steven Marcrum at the Regensburg University Hospital, UKR.

For the UNITI clinical trial, foreseen to start in early 2021, hearing aid provision to study participants with hearing aid indication will be one treatment arm. Now, the devices will be set-up by head audiologist Steven Marcrum, and also sent to the other four clinical centres

We very proudly announce that UNITI Scientific Coordinator, PD Dr Winfried Schlee, tinnitus researcher at Regensburg University, received this year's prestigious tinnitus research award by the German Foundation "Tinnitus and Hearing" of Charit√© Berlin!

Due to the current special circumstances, the award was presented in a virtual ceremony online, on December 3.

This recognition is connected to a monetary reward, in support of further innovative tinnitus research.

The entire UNITI consortium is immensely happy about Winny Schlee's achievement and excited about upcoming developments in our field!
