Research Interests

; ; ; ; ;

Dr. Jan Rosner is a clinician-scientist in neurology with a particular interest in clinical and human experimental research related to neuropathic pain after spinal cord injury (SCI). He received his training in Switzerland at Balgrist University Hospital with Professor Armin Curt. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Danish Pain Research Center at Aarhus University, Denmark in Professor Nanna Finnerup’s research group. He is undertaking research projects related to central neuropathic pain after spinal cord injury. Dr. Rosner is also the Group Leader at the University of Bern’s Stroke Research Center (in Professor Claudio Bassetti’s group) where he supervises medical doctoral students, PhD trainees, and a postdoctoral fellow.

Dr. Rosner’s research focuses on the diagnosis and pathophysiology of neuropathic pain. His current research areas include spinal cord injury pain, degenerative cervical myelopathy, neurophysiological assessments of nociceptive pathways, and thermal sensory integration.

Recent Collaborations:

Since 2015, Dr. Rosner and ICORD PI, Dr. John Kramer, have collaborated closely on several research projects resulting in 12 joint, peer-reviewed publications as of 2023. Dr. Rosner also co-supervised a Master’s student at ICORD and regularly contributes to academic teaching.


Some of Dr. Rosner’s recent major awards and accomplishments include:
