New Vice-Provost for Research and Knowledge Exchange appointed at UNMC

March 7th, 2018

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Deborah Hall to the position of Vice-Provost for Research and Knowledge Exchange at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.

“Deborah is a world renowned researcher and academic leader. Her biography is a testament to that:

“Deborah is an NIHR Senior Investigator and Deputy Director of the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (funded 2017-2022) where she leads research projects on measures in clinical trials, tinnitus and translational neuroscience.

“Deborah graduated from Brunel University in Psychology and completed a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology with Profs Glyn Humphreys and Jane Riddoch at Birmingham University in 1996. She moved to the MRC Institute of Hearing Research in Nottingham to develop auditory functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), firstly as a postdoctoral research fellow, then as a programme leader where she also held an honorary professor appointment in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham.

“In 2009, she left to establish cognitive neuroscience teaching and research in the Division of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University, whilst also leading the tinnitus research group at the NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit (BRU). Following the successful refunding of the BRU, she joined the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham as Professor of Hearing Sciences and was Director of the BRU from April 2012-March 2017.

“Deborah was awarded the British Society of Audiology Thomas Simm Littler prize in 2010 for her services to audiology, and the Tonndorf lecture at the 1st World Tinnitus Congress in 2017. She is Chair of the ‘Outcome measurement’ working group of TINNET (2014-2018) and Training Coordinator of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus (ESIT) Research (2017-2021).

“Deborah’s exact start date in Malaysia is to be confirmed.

“In addition to her role as Vice-Provost, Deborah will continue to lead research in the UK.

“I am sure that you will all join me in congratulating Deborah on her appointment. I think it is a very exciting appointment and I look forward to welcoming her to Malaysia and working closely with her over the coming months and years.”
