Australian Hearing Hub launched at Macquarie University

Macquarie University is renowned for teaching and research excellence in speech and hearing sciences and psychology. The Australian Hearing Hub gives Macquarie students the unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry providing an unrivalled learning experience. Graduates and researchers will drive innovation and improve the lives of people with hearing and language disorders around the world.

On April 17, 2013, researchers, academics, CEOs and politicians came together to officially launch the Australian Hearing Hub at Macquarie University. This ground-breaking new facility brings hearing industries and related organizations under one roof, providing new opportunities for collaboration to improve the quality of life for those affected by hearing loss.

The Australian Hearing Hub is a revolutionary independent research facility inspired by the interdisciplinary working environment of Macquarie. Featuring the National Acoustic Laboratories’ anechoic chamber, specially designed “echo chambers,” and three MEGs—including one specifically for children—it offers state-of-the-art facilities to more than 2,000 professionals from some of the country’s best hearing and allied health organizations, together with staff, students and researchers from one of the country’s leading research universities.

The Australian Hearing Hub

The Australian Hearing Hub unites researchers, educators, clinicians and innovators with expertise in audiology, speech pathology, cognitive and language sciences, psychology, nanofabrication and engineering sciences.

Macquarie University’s Australian Hearing Hub will be a global leader in speech, hearing and language research. The Australian Hearing Hub leverages Macquarie’s extensive international expertise in language sciences and cognitive sciences research, and in clinical research and professional training teams in audiology and speech language pathology.

Best-practice Clinics

Macquarie’s leading speech and hearing, and psychology clinics have been relocated into the Australian Hearing Hub. With everything in one place, patients receive first-class clinical evaluation, testing and diagnosis from leading practitioners. Researchers work across disciplines and with clinicians; clinical and cognitive scientists and rehabilitation specialists work with engineers in tailor-made laboratories.
