Jacqueline Burré, PhD

Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine

Location: New York, NY United States

Jacqueline Burré, PhD, received her diploma in biochemistry from Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, in 2003 and completed her doctoral studies in biochemistry and neurobiology in 2006. For her postdoctoral training, she joined the laboratory of Dr. Thomas C. Südhof at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and later at Stanford University, California. Her work focused on understanding the normal function of the protein alpha-synuclein in the brain and how dysfunction of alpha-synuclein at the synapse -- a point of contact between nerve cells -- contributes to Parkinson's disease and related disorders called synucleinopathies. In 2014, Dr. Burré joined the Brain and Mind Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, where her laboratory studies the mechanisms underlying function and dysfunction of alpha-synuclein in the brain.
