About me

  • Adjunct Professor of Rheumatology at the Department of Medicine, Solna as of
    1 February 2021. Primary position: Consultant/clinical manager at Karolinska
    University Hospital.


  • Jon Lampa is a rheumatologist who researches rheumatic pain. Despite new
    drugs and new means of retarding the course of the disease, around one fifth
    of patients suffer persistent pain that is difficult to treat and that
    profoundly impairs their quality of life. Lampa studies what causes this
    pain, the mechanisms behind it and how it could be prognosed and prevented.
    His research can also contribute to a more general understanding of chronic
    pain, such as that experienced in fibromyalgia.
    Lampa’s research involves the analysis of blood and cerebrospinal fluid as
    well as functional MRI. He heads up a Nordic-European project on pain and
    fatigue in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
    Lampa’s research group has recently identified in patients with RA
    biomarkers for an elevated risk of suffering chronic pain.
