‘Some of the best interaction between music and science I’ve seen in a long time’

‘Listening in the presence of competing sound is a major challenge for hearing impaired people. The work of Dr Wickham, Professor Hawkins and their
colleagues provides a fascinating new opportunity to explore and understand this problem. It was a great pleasure to welcome them to Addenbrooke’s, and this was an example of clinical skills, auditory science and art coming together to glean new insights.’
