Dr. Kroner-Milsch received her MD degree at Julius-Maximilian University, Wuerzburg, Germany in 2002. In 2008, she completed her PhD in Neuroscience under supervision of Dr. Rudolf Martini at Julius-Maximilian University in Wuerzburg investigating the role of immune cells in hereditary myelinopathies.
Following graduation she conducted a postdoctoral fellowship at McGill University in Montreal, Canada in Dr. Sam David’s laboratory. During her postdoctoral fellowship, she started working in the field of spinal cord injury. In 2014, she was promoted to Research Associate. Her work in Dr. David’s laboratory focused on the inflammatory response after spinal cord injury, in particular on the role of macrophages.
Dr. Kroner-Milsch joined the Medical College of Wisconsin in September, 2015 and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery. She continues to explore the role of inflammation after spinal cord injury and aims to modify the inflammatory response in order to achieve improved outcome after spinal cord injury.
