Dr. David Moore Picture

David R. Moore, PhD, is a professor of otolaryngology and director of the Communication Sciences Research Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Educated (PhD Monash University) in Australia, he spent 22 years at Oxford University on projects including auditory spatial hearing, biology of deafness and the consequences of otitis media. He became professor of auditory neuroscience in 2000.

As director of the Medical Research Council Institute of Hearing Research, Nottingham (2002-12), he focused on auditory development and learning in humans. In 2008, he also co-founded the National Biomedical Research Unit in Hearing (NBRUH), refunded in 2011. He has been a visiting scientist at the University of California, Irvine, the University of Washington, Seattle, New York University, and Northwestern University, Chicago.

He was the founder of MindWeavers PLC, creating digital learning experiences based on world-leading brain science. In 2010 he was awarded the George Davey Howells prize of the Royal Society of Medicine for editing the “Oxford Handbook of Auditory Science."
