Professional Summary

Dr. Jankowski joined the faculty in the Department of Anesthesia/ Division of Pain Management at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics in November of 2011.  He is interested in the molecular mechanisms of sensory neuron plasticity after peripheral injuries.  The lab has two main focuses: peripheral mechanisms of musculoskeletal pain specifically in the context of ischemia and the developmental sensitization of sensory afferents.  Previously, he had been awarded both pre-doctoral (2006) and postdoctoral National Research Service Awards (2008) prior to becoming faculty at the University of Pittsburgh.  Since joining the faculty at Cincinnati Children's, he has been a receipient of the Rita Allen Foundation and American Pain Society award in pain, in addition to receiving an Early Career Award from the International Association for the Study of Pain. He has also received numerous grants from the NINDS, NICHD and NIAMS.  He is currently a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the International Association for the Study of Pain, the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia and the American Pain Society.
