Tinnitus Conference returns to Manchester

The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is delighted to be holding its next Annual Conference on Thursday 22 September at the Manchester Conference Centre. With the Conference attracting almost 200 delegates in 2015, the BTA plans to build on previous successes and attract new attendees to this centrally based venue. 

The only Conference in the UK dedicated solely to tinnitus, the programme includes presentations by leading researchers and clinicians, covering new developments in research and best practice.

Speakers and topics include:

·         Emerging genetic targets against hearing loss and tinnitus – Martine Hamann,  Lecturer in Neurosciences, University of Leicester

Poster Submissions

At this year’s Conference, delegates will have the opportunity to submit and present a poster of their work. The BTA wants to hear more about the work being done, involvement in projects, the research or audits delegates have been part of. There will be a dedicated poster session and the BTA hope this new format will foster new debate, learning, and perhaps new collaborations across clinicians, researchers, and all those interested in tinnitus. Anyone interested in submitting a poster to present at this year’s conference should contact Krys Klytta at the email address below.
