Participate in Our Studies
The researchers in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina are conducting studies investigating the effects of aging on hearing and the effects of hearing loss on the ability to understand speech. This research has been funded since 1987 by the National Institutes of Health.  If you are interested in participating in our studies, are 18 years or older, and have normal hearing or hearing loss, please call (843) 792-7977 for further information or to schedule an initial screening visit.  After the initial visit, if you meet the criteria for participation and choose to participate, we will explain the nature of the study and estimate the number of additional visits to the laboratory needed to complete the study.  Each visit lasts approximately 1½ to 2½ hours and is scheduled at your convenience.  Testing may include making listening judgments, repeating combinations of words, and other measures of hearing. These studies are conducted on the fifth floor (Room 505) of the Walton Research Building on the MUSC campus.

Compensation is provided for your time and parking will be validated.

If you are interested in participating or would like additional information, please call (843) 792-7977.  Additional study and contact information can be found at the MUSC Heros website.
