Massachusetts Eye and Ear recently received a $20 million anonymous donation—the largest in its history—to expand its hearing and balance research.
The donation is the second-largest gift for hearing research in the United States, the hospital said, after a $25 million gift to the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine in 2015.
The money will go to the hospital’s Eaton-Peabody Laboratories, housed in the hospital’s Department of Otolaryngology. Researchers there were reportedly the first to restore hearing in mammals by regenerating hair cells and neural connections in the inner ear. The lab will use the gift to recruit and fund new faculty chairs and hearing researchers to pursue treatments for hearing loss and balance disorders.
