About the Meniere's Society Research Programme

Did you know: We've invested over £1million into vestibular research!
 
The Meniere's Society Research Programme was established in 1998. Over the last 21 years we have been pleased to have contributed over £1million into research projects; we now have a better understanding of the psychology of vestibular disorders; better tests to identify and monitor conditions and better, less destructive, treatments for severe cases.
 
The Society is proud to have furthered understanding of these complex conditions and to have supported research across a number of disciplines. At the same time, the Society has built  a reputation within the research community as a supporter of valuable research. This has encouraged researchers to approach the Society with innovative and valuable research proposals.

Success has consequences and whilst we have been able to support many vital research projects, sadly, the Society’s research reserves are limited and we now receive more valid requests than we have the funds to support. 
 
Please help us so we can continue our important work...
