    Benefactor: Progress through Partnership

    The Stanford Initiative to Cure Hearing Loss (SICHL) is at the forefront of curing hearing loss. The goal of SICHL is to devise treatments that repair the damaged inner ear and restore lost hearing, quiet tinnitus, and improve balance. SICHL is building a new paradigm of progress through partnerships and collaboration, coupled with breakthrough science and brilliant problem-solving. It will reinforce the back- and-forth dynamic of translational medicine with one concentrated focus: to find a way to cure—and prevent—hearing loss.
