Associate Professor Catherine McMahon, Department of Linguistics, has been awarded funding to create a new MQ Research Centre. The Centre for Implementation in Hearing Research (I-HeaR).

The centre’s mission is to develop an evidence-based translational pathway that enables effective implementation of hearing research and innovations.

The Centre includes staff in key areas of research excellence across the Australian Hearing Hub, Australian Institution of Health Innovation (AIHI) and Macquarie University Centre for Health Economy (MUCHE).

I-HeaR will capitalise on existing collaborations in health and hearing healthcare, as well as the associated clinical teams and educational programs.

Through its partners within the AHH I-HeaR is well placed to ensure wide dispersion of knowledge, deliver models of best practice, and influence healthcare policy.
