    • advancement of more mature research toward clinical translation
  • Funding Level 3
    • up to USD$1M over 3 years
    • research with a translational research component and a related pilot clinical trial component
  • letters of intent due 22 July 2024
  • must address one or more focus areas:
    • Improve and accelerate the translation of biological regeneration/repair mechanisms into clinical applications. Research addressing the damage, repair, and regeneration of the auditory system after military-relevant injuries is strongly encouraged.
    • Develop diagnostic tests that differentiate sensory, neural, synaptic, and central processing disorders, that may inform applicability and outcomes for current or future hearing restoration therapeutics.
    • Develop reliable in-vitro human models to facilitate the understanding, derivation, and characterization of human auditory cells, and/or to facilitate the evaluation of hearing restoration therapies.
  • Tinnitus or vestibular-related research is excluded.
