2023 Bone Conduction Hearing Award

The OSSEO Congress is delighted to present this year's Bone Conduction Award to Prof. Dr. Hannes Maier!

Hannes Maier studied mathematics and physics at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany. After the pre-diploma, he continued is studies at the Université de Paris Sud, Orsay, France, before he received a Max-Planck fellowship at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt, Germany. There he worked there on the theory of interaction between electric fields and cells receiving his diploma in physics in 1987 and his PhD in 1993 from Johann-Wolfgang-v. Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany. After a post-doctoral position at the Dept. of Otolaryngology, Hearing Research Laboratory, Tübingen University, Germany working experimentally on the micromechanics of the apical cochlea he was appointed Head of Audiology/Neurotology at the Dept. Otolaryngology, Hamburg Eppendorf University Medical School, Hamburg, Germany in 1998. From 2008 to 2011 he joined the start-up Phonak Acoustic Implants SA, Morges, Switzerland as senior research scientist for the development of an active direct acoustic cochlear implant. In 2012 he was appointed associate professor for Experimental Audiology in the Cluster of “Excellence Hearing 4all” and Head of the Acoustic Implants Team, Dept. Otolaryngology, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany. His main areas of research are the audiological and experimental evaluation of active middle ear implants and bone conduction devices as well as the development of new acoustic implants.

Congratulations Dr. Maier!
