Who We Are

​​​Since its inception, research at Boys Town National Research Hospital has made major contributions to the fields of hearing, communication and neurobehavioral research.

Because of our research, we know...

  • How to screen newborn babies' hearing in the U.S. and across the globe
  • How hearing aid technology helps adults and children hear and understand speech
  • How children listen and learn in noisy environments
  • How balance may impact how we learn and remember

What is Translational Research?

Translational research is research that translates from the lab to the clinical room. It has a direct impact to improvements in patient care.


Our research is funded by Boys Town National Research Hospital, federal research grants and from donations and support from our community.
