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 hearing and neuroscience 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 his brother 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. In addition to the Director of Research Administration, the HIF research infrastructure includes two clinical research coordinators and a Hearing Science Accelerator (HSA) program coordinator. The coordinators provide support with IRB application and correspondence, recruiting and consenting participants, and data collection. The research program regularly engages talented undergraduates and consultants in extracting, cleaning, and building large datasets for secondary data analysis.

In July 2022 the HIF research program moved into a new space that includes private offices for research scientists, a sound booth dedicated to research, secure temperature-controlled storage, and workstations for research staff. The research program offices are co-located with the House Children’s Hearing Center and House Hearing Health Center (adult hearing aid clinic). Located in downtown Los Angeles, it is adjacent to the House Ear Clinic at the PIH Health Good Samaritan Hospital.

In addition to the administration of external funds (NIH and foundation), the research program releases requests for funding proposals that leverage the donations from grateful patients and sponsors to support high impact research. As good stewards of the funds, and with a focus on robust science, proposals over $20,000 are externally reviewed through a process that emulates the rigor of an NIH review.
