Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients - UNITI

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!

Recently, our Italian network partners at Istituto Mario Negri in Milan published an article in their institute's magazine, on their various engagements in tinnitus research. Of course, their part in UNITI also plays a major role in this, and we are thankful for their countless contributions and input.

The report (in Italian) is available here: https://www.marionegri.it/magazine/acufen

Congratulations for your outstanding work, looking forward to our continuing collaboration!

Over 40 members of our UNITI project team, on December 3rd 2020, once more met virtually for our series of consortium meetings UNITI TV, already in its 4th edition!

Again this time, we immensely enjoyed and benefited from our fruitful exchange on all project updates, and were delighted to talk to each other!

This is especially important in this intense period of the project, where most members are busily preparing the start of the UNITI clinical trial, scheduled for early 2021.

Truly, everyone is already looking forward to UNITI TV no. 5!
