Dr Nirmal Patel recently won the prestigious Kolling Foundation’s Hearing Impairment Grant for $150 000 in funding. The funds will be used at the new Kolling Deafness Research Centre, at the University of Sydney, Northern Clinical school campus at the Kolling Building (http://www.kolling.usyd.edu.au/). The research involves studying better ways of atraumatically inserting cochlear implant electrodes at the University of Sydney main campus and Kolling building. Dr Nirmal Patel will be supervising two full time Master of Surgery students in understanding better ways of inserting new cochlear implant electrodes. The Sydney Deafness Research Centre also studies better ways to deliver hearing health care to our NSW aboriginal population.
All donations of $2 and above are fully tax deductible as the research centre has full DGR (deductible gift recipient status). To donate to the Kolling Deafness Research Centre please follow the link below:
