Dr. Jankowski is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesia, Division of Pain Management and Principal Investigator. His lab uses a multidisciplinary experimental approach to study the primary afferent based mechanisms of pain development from neonates to adulthood.
Jessica is a third-year neuroscience doctoral student investigating the dynamic changes in muscle afferent receptor expression after injury with methods including molecular biology, ex vivo electrophysiology, behavior, and immunohistochemistry. Her current focus regards sex differences in muscle pain after ischemic injury.
Suzie An is University of Cincinnati biology major, senior, and research lab volunteer. She is currently pursuing graduate school for genetic counseling.
Visiting Research Scientist
Dr. Peilin Lu is an attending anesthesiologist at West China Hospital, Sichuan University, China, currently participating in the Chinese Pediatric Anesthesiologist Research Training Program in the Department of Anesthesia at Cincinnati Children's. She is working on primary skeletal muscle sensory neurons to find out the alterations during developmental inflammation.
Green is a third year student at the University of Cincinnati. After
graduating, Kathryn hopes to attend medical school in Ohio and have a career at
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. She hopes to continue gaining research
experience through her undergraduate years as well as when she attends medical
Luis Queme MD obtained his PhD in Cellular Information Medicine from Nagoya University in Japan where he researched the properties of muscle nociceptors in different animal models of muscle pain. He now continues his research in muscle nociceptors after ischemic events using cutting edge electrophysiology techniques to record signals from dorsal root ganglion cells.
Dr Liu obtained her PhD in physiology from Medical School of Xi’an Jiaotong University in China. Dr Liu started her postdoctoral research in Dr Jankowski’lab in July, 2014.
Research Assistant IV
Renita C. Hudgins obtained her Masters in
Biochemistry from Youngstown State University and continued graduate studies at
Miami University of Ohio. Renita is currently working on the gene expression profile of growth hormone receptor
knock-out mice during development and their behavioral response to mechanical
and thermal stimuli before & after peripheral injury.
