Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah is proud to announce that he is celebrating more than 30 years of distinguished service to the Fields of Neurophysiology & Biophysics. As a Physiology and Cell Biology professor at the Communication Science Program at the University of Nevada’s Reno School of Medicine, Dr. Yamoah has had the pleasure of seeing many of his students go on to fruitful and productive careers.
Over the years, Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah has received several prestigious awards. These include the 1988 American Society for Cell Biology Summer Fellowship, the Hole, MA 1989 Potters’ Research Fellowship, the MA 1994 Grass Foundation Research Fellowship, 2005 Visiting Fellow, MBL, BioCurrent Research Facility, Woods Hole, the MA 2000 – 2002 Josiah Macy Faculty Research Fellowship in Neuroscience, and the 2005 – 2007 Faculty Mentorship Award 2010 Dean of School of Medicine Research Excellence Award, University of California, Davis, CA.
At present, Dr. Yamoah has been awarded five current grants to support his work and his colleagues’ work, with another yet pending and grant funding for over a dozen completed projects.
Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah enjoys positions of distinguished membership in the Society for Neuroscience, the Biophysical Society, the American Association for the Advancement in Science, the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO), and the Society for General Physiologists.
Over his many years of distinguished service to science and education, Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah has given numerous presentations and delivered visiting professor lectures worldwide. In November of 2018, Dr. Yamoah gave a presentation entitled “Oddments of K+ Channel Functions in Hair Cells and Auditory Neuron Properties that Shape the Speed of Hearing at the University of Iowa, Neuroscience Seminar Series.”
Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah’s work in neurophysiology, the auditory system, hair cells, and biophysics has been invaluable in treating medical conditions covered by this body of knowledge and to his fellow researchers. Dr. Yamoah’s active devotion to the development of understanding in these areas of interest has made his career as an educator second to none.
While Dr. Ebenezer Yamoah enjoys recognition for his many professional accomplishments in administration, research, and pedagogy, in addition to his contributions to science, he is most proud of the praise that has been heaped upon him by the many successful students who have passed through his classroom. To be sure, without Dr. Yamoah’s talent and dedication as an educator, the prospects of those who have studied under him would be measurably dimmer.
