About us

The Tübingen Hearing Research Centre (THRC) is committed to advancing both interdisciplinary fundamental research and practical development in the areas of normal and pathological sensory processing, encompassing hearing, balance, smell, and taste. Fundamental research aims to push the boundaries of scientific knowledge, while applied development seeks to leverage these insights for the creation of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic tools for patients. This developmental process is informed by the high-quality outcomes derived from fundamental research. To achieve our goals, we have established various partnerships with industry stakeholders.

As an integral part of Tübingen University, the THRC is dedicated to the training of both pre- and postdoctoral students across diverse disciplines such as medicine, biology, biochemistry, physics, and engineering.

Located at Tübingen University Hospital, the THRC maintains close collaboration with clinical departments, including otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery, neurology, neuropsychology, ophthalmology, and clinical genetics.

Operating as a non-profit organization, the THRC utilizes present-day resources to contribute to a better future for generations to come, prioritizing the well-being of our children and grandchildren.
