Jackie Schiller

Neuroscientist Jackie Schiller has been an Einstein Visiting Fellow since early 2022, working with a team led by Professor Sarah Shoichet and Professor Dietmar Schmitz (Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin). The researchers are investigating the genetic causes of changes in the Caspr2 protein to understand how they affect the cellular and molecular level. By comparing the altered brain waves, they hope to identify how neuropsychiatric disorders with genetic causes differ from those caused by antibody responses. At the Neuroscience Research Centre of the Charité, the expert in cellular neuroscience will set up a joint working group with researchers from Haifa. The long-term goal is to use the cooperation between Haifa and Berlin to advance research into the causes of other neuronal diseases.
