About HIF: 

Founded in 1946, the House Institute Foundation has been at the forefront of advancements in hearing health for the past 75 years. Our seminal contributions to prevention, treatment, education, research, and humanitarian efforts exemplify our threefold mission of research, education, and global hearing health, “so all may hear.”

 The Institute is named for Dr. Howard P. House, a pioneering Otologist who, along with hisbrother Dr. William “Bill” House, is responsible for some of the earliest work in the world toward development of surgery techniques, temporal bone research, the first standardized functional hearing test, and the first cochlear implant system.

The House Institute (including the name) has evolved over the decades. Distinct contributions and areas of emphasis characterize the generations of research and education. For example, research conducted at the Institute led to workplace noise regulations, pioneering work on auditory brainstem implants and in partnership with 3M the development of the first FDA approved cochlear implant for adults and children. The contemporary focus is on translational research, grounded in and inspired by the patient-physician relationship.

Our current research program supports clinical trials and five research centers specializing in acoustic neuromas/ neurofibromatosis type 2, Meniere’s disease, auditory prosthesis, neurosurgery, and pediatric hearing health.
