Jean Hebert

Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Dr. Hébert is a professor in the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience and the department of genetics at Einstein. His interest in genetics and neurodevelopment began when he was a student at McGill University and eventually led him to receive a Ph.D. in genetics from the University of California, San Francisco. After graduation, Dr. Hébert worked as a postdoctoral assistant and research associate in the lab of Susan McConnell, Ph.D., at Stanford University before coming to Einstein in 2003 as an assistant professor.

In early September 2013, Dr. Hébert and Ph.D. student Michelle W. Antoine published results of a study in the journal Science: “A Causative Link between Inner Ear Defects and Long-Term Striatal Dysfunction.” The article garnered significant attention in the popular media, suggesting that hyperactivity in some children could be caused by inner ear disorders that are producing abnormal functioning of the striatum, a central brain area that controls movement. This observation has opened up the possibility that hyperactivity caused by inner ear dysfunction might eventually be controlled with medications that either directly or indirectly inhibits the levels of two key proteins that are elevated in the striatum.
