ATA's Scientific Advisory Committee
ATA's distinguished Scientific Advisory Committee, which includes some of the world’s best tinnitus researchers, reviews tinnitus-related research proposals and selects candidates for ATA funding. This committee crafted ATA’s Roadmap to a Cure, the innovative research guide that puts scientists on track toward a cure for tinnitus.
ATA is grateful for the time and careful scrutiny these exceptional researchers volunteer to make sure only the best proposals receive ATA funding. Their work guarantees that we wisely spend the money you donate to help us find a cure.
