Professor Helen Cullington is passionate about her work: innovative scientific research combined with changing people’s lives.
A cochlear implant is an implanted electronic device that provides hearing to adults and children with severe to profound deafness. Helen Cullington is a clinician and researcher working at the University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service. She has more than 28 years’ experience in cochlear implants, having worked on several cochlear implant programmes within the United Kingdom and the United States, including House Ear Institute in Los Angeles.
Helen’s main interest is remote care: empowering people with cochlear implants to manage their care at home. During the pandemic, Helen made headlines by switching on a toddler’s cochlear implants remotely.
