Research Opportunities

Research plays a crucial role in improving hearing loss diagnoses, treatments, and general care. There are several local research participation opportunities available to hearing loss patients.


The UCSF Limb Lab (Principal Investigator: Charles Limb, MD) conducts research on music and complex sound perception in cochlear implant users, as well as musical creativity. More information about the Limb Lab and guidance on how to get involved can be found here:

UCSF has a host of other labs conducting research with hearing loss patients, including clinical trials, clinical research, and laboratory research. Find out more about UCSF hearing loss research here:
