Professor Sven Vanneste

Research professor of systems neuroscience in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas and Professor at the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin. Born in Belgium he received PhD in Medical Sciences.

In 2013, he subsequently moved to the United States where now is running the Lab for Clinical and Integrative Neuroscience. Dr. Vanneste’s research focuses on understanding the neural mechanisms underlying tinnitus and to develop novel invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation treatments for tinnitus. He has published more than 250 research articles on tinnitus, fibromyalgia, pain, addiction and neuromodulation in key scientific journals.

Dr. Vanneste is in the board of cost action TINNET by the European Union that aims the establishment of a pan-European multidisciplinary network with the major goal to facilitate the identification of meaningful criteria for tinnitus subtyping, the neurobiological underpinnings of the different tinnitus subtypes, and their relevance for response to treatment. He is also member of the neurostimulation workgroup and principal investigator for Pharmagroup.
