The University of Michigan was proud to host the 9th International TRI Tinnitus Symposium Conference on June 7-10. This three-day event explored basic mechanisms underlying tinnitus including cochlear damage consequences, synaptic plasticity, non-auditory (limbic, attentional, somatosensory) networks, as well as many areas of translational research.
Dr. Susan Shore was elected by the society to host the event and did a remarkable job. Active participation and invited talks were presented by Dr. Richard Altschuler, Dr Gregory Basura, Dr. Gabriel Corfas, Dr. Yehoash Raphael and Dr. Susan Shore. This conference facilitated new national and international collaborations and funding opportunities, as well as bringing great awareness to the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
