Prof. David A. Seminowicz

David A. Seminowicz, PhD, Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics, Schulich School Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. He earned a BSc from the University of Guelph, a PhD at the University of Toronto and completed postdoctoral training at McGill University. He was faculty at University of Maryland, Baltimore, from 2010-2022. He was also Principal Research Scientist at Neuroscience Research Australia, in Sydney, from 2019-2022. His work has focused on the cognitive aspects of pain, individual differences in the response to pain, and the consequence of chronic pain on brain structure and function. Ongoing studies in Dr. Seminowicz’s lab employ longitudinal designs to assess how interventions affect brain function and whether pain biomarkers can be developed. Another line of work examines the role of the claustrum in cognitive control and pain. The main techniques in his lab include quantitative sensory testing, EEG, MRI, and simultaneous EEG-fMRI.
