Many congratulations to MRC CBU’s Tobias Goehring who has been awarded an MRC Career Development Award (CDA), for his project ‘restoring the sense of sound: deep-learning based compensation strategies for the electro-neural transmission of sound by cochlear implants’.
A career development award is a personal award that aims to support individuals seeking to transition to independence through protected research time and an ambitious programme of research training and personal career development.
Tobias said, “I am delighted and energised by this unique opportunity to accelerate my research at the MRC CBU. My goal is to overcome the difficulties that people with cochlear implants have in understanding speech in noisy situations that are typical of everyday life. This Fellowship will allow me to collaborate with other researchers in Cambridge and internationally to build a multi-disciplinary approach with great potential to improve medical hearing devices.”
