Boris Rosin, IMRIC Researcher
Born in the city of Kishinev, former USSR, in 1974, Mr. Boris Rosin immigrated to Israel with his parents at the age of 13. He is currently a MD-PhD student at The Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada at The Faculty of Medicine at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Check out my latest Vlog post. I am so excited to share my latest breakthrough research with you on Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), carried out at the Hebrew University Faculty of Medicine at the laboratory of Hagai Bergman, Simone and Bernard Guttmann Professor of Brain Research at the Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada (IMRIC) and the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC). DBS has provided significant therapeutic benefits for movement disorders like Parkinson’s and for disorders like chronic pain and major depression.  Our research could possibly improve the current DBS method. In DBS an electrode is implanted in a deep region of the brain, serving as a “brain pacemaker” delivering electrical stimuli at the implantation site. The result is that the patient receives a measure of immediate relief from these symptoms.
