About the event

Dr.  Jastreboff is currently Professor at Department of Otolaryngology,  Emory University School of Medicine. After 8 years at Yale University  and 8 years at the University of Maryland, where he established the  first Tinnitus & Hyperacusis Center in the USA, he moved to Emory  University. In 1984 he proposed the first accepted animal model of  tinnitus, in 1988 the neurophysiological model of tinnitus and Tinnitus  Retraining Therapy (TRT). He is involved in clinical work and treating  patients with tinnitus and/or decreased sound tolerance since 1990.  Simultaneously with clinical work he has been conducting basic science  and clinical research aimed at delineating the mechanisms of tinnitus  and designing new methods of alleviation of tinnitus, hyperacusis and  misophonia. In 2001, together with Margaret M. Jastreboff, Ph.D., he  proposed the concept, name and initial treatment for misophonia. Dr.  Jastreboff received a Ph.D. in Neurophysiology (1973) and Doctor of  Sciences Degree (habilitation, 1982) in Neuroscience from the Polish  Academy of Sciences. He did his Postdoctoral training at the University  of Tokyo, Japan. In 2005 he received M.B.A. (valedictorian) from  Goizueta Business School at Emory University. He has been a Visiting  Professor at University of Tokyo and at Yale University and currently  holds Visiting Professor appointments at University College London and  Middlesex Hospital, London, England. From 2001 until 2010, together with  Margaret M. Jastreboff, Ph.D., he has been Adjunct Professor at Salus  University teaching tinnitus and hyperacusis class in the Au.D. program.  1,954 audiologists (about 25% of all Au.D. degrees in the USA) took  this class. He is a co-author of over 130 papers, 170 abstracts and  three books. In 1993 he received the prestigious Robert W. Hocks award  for his contribution to the field of tinnitus.
