Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

More than 450 million people have disabling hearing loss, according to the World Health Organization. Through our research, education and global health programs, we are working toward a world where hearing solutions and related medical interventions and treatments are available to all.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Research

Our team of Faculty and research scientists focus their research on the causes and treatment of both sudden and progressive hearing loss due to associated genetic disorders and sensorineural hearing loss. Current research directions include, but are not limited to, natural history of neurofibromitosis type 2 (NF2), tinnitus treatment, balance disorders, and cochlear implantation.

Population(s) Served
People with hearing impairments

Our global hearing health efforts aim to support physicians worldwide, as well as provide hearing solutions and interventions for undeserved populations at home and abroad.

Population(s) Served
People with hearing impairments

Our education programs aim to support medical professionals as well as the general public, through our extensive library of surgical technique videos, visiting physicians program, fellows program, temporal bone dissection courses, and temporal bone surgical dissection manual. We also develop print and web content to help educate the public about various hearing conditions and how to prevent hearing loss.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to help create a world where all may hear through leveraging the expertise of our faculty and focusing our efforts on high impact research, education and global health efforts. We aim to continue to lead the way in hypothesis-driven and sponsored research to develop solutions and cures for hearing-related disorders. We also focus on sharing our knowledge through education for the public and professionals alike, including a physician shadowing program that attracts doctors from all over the world who bring the techniques they observe home with them. In partnership with in-country organizations and institutions, we coordinate professionals around the globe and encourage our faculty and fellows to contribute to sustainable otology projects in countries overseas, as well as in undeserved communities in the greater LA area.

Our three-pronged mission is strategically designed to help us spread the gift of hearing to as many as possible. Our approach is comprehensive: developing new treatments (research), sharing what these are (education), and bringing these to under-resourced populations at home and abroad (global health). In order to fund our efforts, we focus on mobilizing donors and securing grants.

Several capabilities are helping us to achieve our goals. These include significant reserve funds, a committed faculty of otologists and neurosurgeons, a growing team of non-profit staff supporting research, communications, and fundraising efforts, as well as access to patients and medical records through House Clinic to further research. We have a long history of community support and donorship, as well as partnership with institutions and medical device companies that help fund our work.

The House Institute Foundation has been at the forefront of many advances in the field of otology. From the development of the first clinically useful cochlear implant and auditory brainstem implant, to the introduction of the translabyrinthine approach for removal of acoustic neuromas, we have a rich history of innovation. We are continuing our research in key areas related including NF2, vestibular schwannoma, tinnitus, meniere's disease, and sudden hearing loss. We are also expanding our education programs to provide more information around hearing loss prevention for the public, and create online, interactive components to our professional education programs, such as our temporal bone dissection course and visiting physicians program. Focusing on developing the robustness of our education programs allows for the expanded reach of important information, best practices and cutting-edge surgical technique. Our impact is furthered through the work of individual scientists and otologists affiliated with the House Institute who are involved in collaborative global health projects across the globe, including China, Ecuador, Peru, Malawi, and Paraguay.
