A New Device to Alleviate Tinnitus


MSI PI Hubert Lim (professor; Otolaryngology; Biomedical Engineering) is part of an international team that has developed a non-invasive device that can help millions of people with tinnitus, also known as “ringing in the ears.” The device, called Lenire, has been approved by the FDA; it has been used in Europe since 2019. Studies of Lenire showed high rates of improvement after treatment with the device. A story about the research behind the device appears on the College of Science and Engineering website: UMN professor part of team that has received FDA approval for new tinnitus treatment.

Professor Lim uses MSI resources to perform large-scale neural analyses, run computational modeling programs, and perform large-scale genomic/RNA-sequence analyses.
