The American Hearing Research Foundtion provides monetary support for scientific projects that have great potential in alleviating hearing loss. Hearing loss is a common sensory disorder with wide-ranging impacts that include impaired language acquisition in deaf children and social isolation and depression in adults who lose their hearing later in life. ~33% of American adults begin to lose their hearing between the ages of 19 and 44 years (NIDCD), and this is likely to increase with the widespread use of portable music players.

The funding provided by the foundation allows young investigators the means to pursue their own line of independent work in the auditory field.
