Auditory Science Publications

NOHR Foundation has provided funding for scientific publications which resulted from otologic conferences at the Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center at the University of Washington, the Kresge Hearing Research Laboratory at Louisiana State University and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.

NOHR had wonderful input and help from the organization HEAR (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers) and its founder, Kathy Peck.

Facilitated Grants

From time to time, NOHR Foundation is privileged to assist other philanthropic organizations which wish to fund hearing research, but need direction as to the best scientists and projects to support. NOHR Foundation has been honored to facilitate several substantial grants to auditory scientists from various other foundations and a health insurance provider.
