Recruiting studies

Active studies with public and patient participants are listed below. Please note, some of these studies may require referral from a healthcare professional.

Accessibility of TV speech

We are carrying out a research study so that we can understand why many people find the speech used in television, radio and online media (“reproduced speech”) difficult to understand. 

BAMBINO study (improving hearing tests for babies)

The BAMBINO (Behavioural Audiometry Measures in Babies: Innovation, Novelty and Optimisation) study is working with families and children under 2 years old to improve hearing tests for babies.

Hearing aid study

We’re looking for people to take part in a study comparing two different sets of hearing aids. It will take place via video calls and phone calls, so it will not require any visits to the University or an audiology clinic.

Pharmacy use and hearing loss study

Researchers are looking at the experiences of people with hearing difficulties when using community pharmacy (a ‘chemist’). We are looking for people aged 50 or older with and without hearing difficulties to take part in online interviews
