Organisation profile

The Department is mostly engaged in general clinical research within the ORL area, but basic research areas include middle ear physiology and DNA profiling of head-and-neck cancers. In addition, we have multidisciplinary projects with Aalborg University including the TKS ‘tongue-control-system’, where tetraplegic patients have a clinical tongue piercing, which can control assistive devices such as a wheelchair; moreover, we take part in neurophysiological projects investigating changes in pain levels in patient with sleep apnoe.

The audiological areas include the BEAR ’Better Hearing Rehabilitation’ project, which focuses on improved hearing tests and treatments of hearing loss with hearing aids. This project is multidisciplinary with partners at AAU, SDU, OUH, DTU og RH, and it has been funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark as well as the industry. Moreover, vestibular research has been well established and is considered one of the major cornerstones within  our ‘Dizziness and Balance Center’.
