NOHR Foundation
Funding Biomedical Research into the
Preventions, Treatments, Causes and Cures
of Hearing Loss & Deafness

The National Organization for Hearing Research Foundation (NOHR) was established to fund and support research into the causes, preventions, treatments and cures of hearing loss and deafness. The foundation operates according to three basic principles:

  • Hearing research is our priority, as 40 million Americans are afflicted at tremendous societal and human cost, and effective treatments remain elusive.
  • The necessary breakthroughs can only result from intensive, interdisciplinary, and innovative biomedical research.
  • As many other organizations address matters of public education, social awareness, and amelioration of suffering and disadvantage, NOHR Foundation will devote its resources to biomedical research, with rare exceptions.

NOHR Foundation believes that dedication to these three ideals and responsible administration thereof will enable the foundation to make the greatest impact on the most people possible.
