Coralie de Hemptinne, PhD

Associate Researcher at University of California, San Francisco

Location: San Francisco, CA United States

Coralie de Hemptinne, PhD, earned her undergraduate degree in molecular biology from Universite libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, and her doctoral degree in neurophysiology from Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship under the supervision of Dr. Philip Starr at the University of California, San Francisco, where she is now an associate researcher in the Department of Neurological Surgery.

The aim of her research is to understand the disease-related changes in the nervous system that cause motor and non-motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD). She also aims to identify biomarkers, or objective measures of disease, and use them to guide brain stimulation. She studies brain signals during deep brain stimulation surgery and works with patients who already have an implanted device. Using cutting-edge technology, de Hemptinne discovered that deep brain stimulation is able to correct disease-related changes in the brains of people with Parkinson's disease.
