Jannat Khan is the Spine Research Fellow for Howard An, MD, at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush University Medical Center. She grew up in Brooklyn, NY, Lahore, Pakistan and High Point, NC. She received her undergraduate degree (Biology/Chemistry) from Davidson College and is a current a 4th year medical student at Wake Forest School of Medicine.

Khan is interested in learning about the advancement of machine learning in the field of orthopaedics, and the impact of comorbidities on clinical and radiographic outcomes after spine surgery. Furthermore, she has a strong interest in exploring different modalities for regeneration and repair following nerve injury. This led her to study the accuracy of the Denis Classification and present her findings at the 2017 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ Annual Meeting.

In her free time, she enjoys long-distance running, choreographing bhangra, exploring new cuisines and playing lacrosse. She will be applying for residency this year.
