Welcome to the Jean-Uhrmacher-Institute!

The „Jean-Uhrmacher-Institute for Clinical ENT-Research (JUI)“ was founded in 2002 and is situated close to the University Hospital Cologne.


As an institute associated with the University of Cologne and in cooperation with the ENT-University Hospital and further partners of the University of Cologne, JUI conducts research with regard to the diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation of ear, nose and throat diseases. Specifically, inflammatory and carciogenic processes (Oncology) as well as communication disorders (Audiology) including rehabilitation with modern hearing systems (Cochlear Implants, Cochlear Implant Centrum Köln – CIK) are focussed.


The Jean Uhrmacher Institute is supported by the Jean Uhrmacher Foundation, which was established in 1978 by Mrs. Hildegard Uhrmacher to help investigate the causes and consequences of ENT-related diseases and develop appropriate therapies and rehabilitation measures.
