Jinsheng Zhang

Jinsheng Zhang received a Ph.D. degree in auditory neurophysiology at University of Fribourg in Switzerland in 1997. He is a tenured full Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology, School of Medicine and the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Wayne State University. He is the Vice Chair for Research and Research Director of the Department of Otolaryngology at Wayne State University School of Medicine. He is the director of the Laboratories of Tinnitus and Auditory Neuroscience Research. His research interests encompass neural mechanisms underlying noise- and blast-induced tinnitus, tinnitus-related traumatic brain injury, brain neuromodulation with sound, electrical stimulation, light and pharmacological agents to treat tinnitus and related neurological disorders, multi-structure electrophysiological recordings, cross-modality neural plasticity, and auditory prostheses. Over the years, he has served as principal investigator on NIH-, DOD-, NSF-, and private agencies-funded projects, and has 80 publications, holds 3 patents, and has trained 40 residents, postdocs, Ph.D. students and other trainees. He was invited to speak at several international tinnitus conferences including Asian-Pacific International Tinnitus Symposium, International Tinnitus Seminar, Tinnitus Research Initiative International Meeting, International Association of Physician in Audiology, and DOD International Tinnitus Conference. He serves as reviewers for a number of scientific journals, as well as federal, international and private funding agencies. He also serves as Associate Editor of JMIHI, Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics, guest associate editor of the Journal of American Audiology, board officer of the Lions Hearing Center of Michigan, Scientific advisory committee of the XIth International Tinnitus Seminars in Berlin, and the Scientific Research Advisory Committee of the American Tinnitus Association. He is recently elected as the Chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee (consisting of international tinnitus experts) of the American Tinnitus Association. He also organized a special issue on tinnitus, with contributions from experts around the world. This issue appears in the journal Frontiers in Neurology (http://journal.frontiersin.org/researchtopic/tinnitus-an-attempt-to-confront-the-diverse-models-2633).
