*About Dr. Jastreboff


Pawel J. Jastreboff, Ph.D., Sc.D., Professor and Director, Emory Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Center



After 8 years at Yale University and 8 years at University of Maryland, where he established Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Center Dr. Jastreboff moved to Emory University in January 1999 to continue his research on tinnitus and to create Emory Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Center - a center of excellence for tinnitus research and patients treatment. In 1988, on the basis of research on the physiological mechanisms of tinnitus Dr. Jastreboff proposed a neurophysiological model of tinnitus and Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). He has also created an animal model of tinnitus, and his present research is aimed at delineating the mechanisms of tinnitus and designing new methods of tinnitus and hyperacusis alleviation. Dr. Jastreboff received a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Doctor of Sciences Degree (Neuroscience) from the Polish Academy of Science. He did his Postdoctoral training at the University of Tokyo, Japan. He holds Visiting Professor appointments at Yale University School of Medicine and at University College London and Middlesex Hospital, London, England.
