I did my undergraduate studies majoring in psychology at University of Turku, Finland. I defended my PhD on neurocognitive mechanisms of social attention at University of Turku in 2006. After that, I worked as a post-doc at the MRC CBU in Cambridge, UK studying neural mechanisms of face perception in Andy Calder’s group.
I returned to Finland in 2008, to work as Academy of Finland junior fellow and subsequently as senior fellow at Turku PET Center and Aalto University. After a four-year appointment as Assistant professor in cognitive neuroscience at Aalto University, I returned to the University of Turku with my laboratory.
Currently I lead the Human Emotion Systems laboratory at Turku PET Centre and Department of Psychology, University of Turku. Our group studies functional and molecular neural mechanisms of human emotions and social interaction in complex, life-like settings with magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, magneto- and electroencephalography and behavioural techniques.
I have written over 100 scientific articles on brain basis of emotions and social cognition, and acquired more than 4M€ grant money for our group. Currently our research is funded by the Academy of Finland, The Sigrid Juselius Foundation, and the Emil Aaltonen Foundation.
Christopher Sivert Nielsen is a psychologist and epidemiologist specializing in population-based studies of chronic pain and pain sensitivity.
His research interests encompass the causes and consequences of individual differences in pain sensitivity, and mapping the patterns of comorbidity associated with chronic pain and hyperalgesia.
He currently leads the EU funded project PainFACT, aimed at identifying molecular mechanisms linking pain with fatigue, affective disorders, cardiovascular disease, and multimorbidity.
Robert C. Coghill’s research interleaves data obtained with functional MRI of brain activity with subjective reports of pain and psychological state.
Together with a highly collaborative group of clinicians and scientists within the Pediatric Pain Research Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, he is using these approaches to better understand multiple forms of pediatric chronic pain.
Dr. Martin Schmelz is director of the Dept. of Experimental Pain Research at the Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University and as neurophysiologist focused on translational aspects of itch and pain.
His focus in on sensitization of primary afferents recording from experimental animals, volunteers and patients spanning a period of 30 years (H-factor >65). Key research questions are mechanisms of ongoing activity and sensitized supra-threshold encoding of nociceptors.
Dr. Jan Vollert is a bioinformatician with a PhD in Neurophysiology from the Medical Faculty Mannheim of the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, Germany.
His research focuses on the application of statistical and computational models in pain research, mainly in Quantitative Sensory Testing. Dr. Jan Vollert published over 50 peer-reviewed papers, and the h-index is 17. Invited speaker at congresses of the IASP, the NeupSIG, and the European Pain Federation.
Rocco Giordano received a B.Sc. degree in health biotechnologies and a M.Sc. in medical biotechnology from the Catholic University of Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy.
Subsequently, he worked as research assistant in several laboratories at the Catholic University of Sacred Heart, Rome, Italy, acquiring expertise in new high throughput molecular techniques to evaluate the expression of non-coding RNA and proteins. In 2016, he worked at IRCCS Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi, Rome, Italy increasing his interest in pain research and genomic biomarkers.
In September 2016, he enrolled as Ph.D. fellow at Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain under the supervision of Prof. Lars Arendt-Nielsen at Aalborg University, Denmark. He is interested in epigenetics, transcriptomics, proteomics and molecular biology behind the pain process.
He focusses his research on evaluating potential circulating genomic biomarkers involved in pain pathways. In September 2021, he obtained a PhD in “Biomedical Science and Engineering” defending a thesis titled “Epigenetic and Proteomic Signatures for Chronic Pain Patients after Total Knee Replacement”, showing evidence of the interaction between epigenetic modifications and post-operative pain.
Nanna B. Finnerup is professor and director of the Danish Pain Research Center at Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University.
She has a long-standing research interest in neuropathic pain. She is past-president of SASP and past-chair of NeuPSIG.
Anthony Dickenson, BSc, PhD, FmedSci, FBPharmcolS is Emeritus Professor of Neuropharmacology in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at University College, London, United Kingdom.
He gained his PhD at the National Institute for Medical Research, London, and has held posts in Paris, California and Sweden. He joined UCL in 1983 and was made Professor in 1995.
His research interests are pharmacology of the nervous system with an emphasis on the mechanisms of pain and how pain can be controlled in both normal and pathophysiological conditions, and how to translate basic science to the patient.
He has made seminal contributions to the science of pain and its treatments and several of his key studies have become pivotal to clinical pain management. Prof. Dickenson is an Honorary Member of the British Pain Society , was a member of the Council of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) for 6 years and is Section Editor for the journal Pain.
He was elected as an Honorary Member of IASP and a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society. He has authored more than 360 refereed publications and has an h index of 104, all due to his motivated and brilliant research team; he is a founding and continuing member of the Wellcome Trust funded London Pain Consortium, an international group that has received funding of over £15M from 2002 to now.
His research has been continually additionally funded since 1984 by bodies including the Medical Research Council, BBSRC, EU Funds (6 occassions), Arthritis UK, NIH USA and others.
Chair in Pain Medicine, University of Dundee/ Consultant in Anaesthesia & Pain Medicine, NHS Tayside | Deputy Head of Division, Population Health and Genomics.
Hon. Professor in Pain Medicine, University of EdinburghUntil May 2018, Lesley Colvin was a full-time pain specialist in the Lothian Chronic Pain Service, and Hon Professor, University of Edinburgh. Chair of Pain Medicine, University of Dundee, in May 2018.
Recognising the importance of cross discipline collaboration, Lesley Colvin was one of the founders of the Edinburgh Translational Research in Pain (ETRiP) collaboration, set up in 2000. The aim was to bring together clinicians and basic scientists from a range of backgrounds to effectively translate novel basic science findings to clinical benefit.
This developed, with successful grant applications and publications. In Dundee, working with Profs Blair Smith (Population Health) and Tim Hales (Neuroscience), the aim is to progress pain research, using an iterative approach to understand and improve management of challenging clinical pain syndromes.
This includes collaboration with Irene Tracey, from Oxford, using fMRI to better understand clinical pain syndromes, such as chemotherapy induced neuropathy and multiple sclerosis. Citations: 5,649 and h-index: 38.
