Prof. Tyler commented: “There are estimates of up to 30% of the population suffering from tinnitus and no one seems to want to help them. Many of these patients cannot sleep at night and take medications for anxiety and depression. I am excited to join Neuromod’s Clinical Advisory Board. Neuromod are working with leading tinnitus scientists and are taking an evidence-based approach to develop treatments for this large unmet clinical need. They have conducted some of the largest and most rigorous clinical trials to date in tinnitus. I am glad to play a part in helping them develop viable treatment options for the millions of patients living with this debilitating condition.”
