“After a rewarding career in neuroscience, founding AudioCure for me was the logical next step. There is such a tremendous unmet need for pharmacotherapies for hearing impaired patients. The similarities between the pathogenesis of neurodegeneration and inner ear impairment are striking. I strongly believe that a cure of acute hearing disorders should be possible.”

Prof. Hans Rommelspacher, MD

Chief Scientific Officer and Founder

Professor Rommelspacher has dedicated his career to the discovery and preclinical development of drug candidates for neurodegenerative diseases with an emphasis on neuroprotection and neuroregeneration. He studied medicine in Germany, Switzerland and Austria before obtaining his MD at the University of Tübingen. He then worked as a clinician and researcher at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago, Free University in Berlin and Johns Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore before becoming Head of the Department of Clinical Neurobiology at the Psychiatric Clinic, Charité University, Berlin. It is Prof. Rommelspacher’s scientific expertise and lifelong dedication to science that led to the discovery of AC102, the AudioCure´s front-runner molecule.
