Google’s da­ta-crunch­ing mavens at GV buy in to Deci­bel’s R&D pro­gram for hear­ing loss, tin­ni­tus

GV, bet­ter known as the group once named Google Ven­tures, is buy­ing in­to Boston-based Deci­bel Ther­a­peu­tics. But we don’t know just how much it bought in for.

In a state­ment out Thurs­day morn­ing Deci­bel CEO Steve Holtz­man says GV made an un­spec­i­fied eq­ui­ty in­vest­ment in the com­pa­ny. Just as im­por­tant­ly, the ven­ture group is al­so con­tribut­ing its know-how on an­a­lyz­ing large vol­umes of da­ta, which Deci­bel re­lies on to help steer its de­vel­op­ment work in a still large­ly un­chart­ed ter­ri­to­ry like hear­ing loss and tin­ni­tus.
