Ming Zhang, M.D., Ph.D.
Associate Professor



MD Clinical Fellow Certificates in Otolaryngology - Universities of Zurich & Iowa
PhD Speech Pathology & Audiology - University of Iowa
Postdoctoral Fellowships - Northwestern University and House Ear Institute


Teach Cochlear Implant, Advanced Electrophysiology, Research Experience, etc.
Research supervision of Audiology doctoral students.


Apply neuroscience & bioengineering in clinical issues, e.g., cochlear & brain responses, speech perception, amplification, tinnitus, aging, and cell regeneration.


As a former trainee myself, I relate to the students, and expect them to continuously look for ways to improve their work and be able to share these new ways with others via conferences, seminars, or journal publications.
