Action on Hearing Loss TRIH Grant
Our Translational Research Initiative for Hearing (TRIH) Grant aims to help strengthen the translation of fundamental research towards patient benefit. It supports:
- Research with a strong commercial potential that is likely to attract follow-on funding at the conclusion of the grant.
- Studies that will facilitate and enable the progression of promising basic research towards testing in clinical trials.
The scope of the TRIH call varies from year to year. This year, applications will be accepted in the following areas:
Small molecule, gene or cell-based approaches for the treatment of hearing loss or tinnitus.
This can include:
- Studies which will enable lead optimisation and/or candidate selection.
- Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics (PKPD) studies.
- Safety/toxicology studies.
- Drug repositioning/repurposing (applications must contain preliminary data supporting the proposed approach)
Research that addresses at least one of the following “TRIH Challenge” topics
- Validation of therapeutic targets for the treatment of hearing loss or tinnitus (applications must contain preliminary data supporting the proposed approach).
- Studies to strengthen confidence that a target or therapeutic approach will be applicable to human hearing loss or tinnitus.
- Preclinical model validation i.e. studies to increase the understanding of invivo or in-vitro model relevance to human hearing loss or tinnitus.
- Identification/validation of methods or outcomes that could be used for one or more of the following:
- Patient selection/stratification for clinical trials
- Robust measurement of treatment responses in clinical trials.
