Dr. Dietrich Büsselberg joined HBKU and Weill Cornell Medicine - Q (WCM-Q) in January 2010. Prior to coming to WCM-Q, he served as Professor of Physiology and Neuroscience at Texas Tech University, Health Science Center, Paul L. Foster School of Medicine. Dr. Büsselberg holds a State Exam for Teaching from the University of Hannover, Germany (1981) a BS and MS from University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany (1987) and a PhD from the University of Hohenheim (Germany), Institute of Zoology in collaboration with the University of Albany (U.S.), School of Public Health (1989). In 1995 he received a habilitation and venia legendi for Physiology from the Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf Medical School.
Following his formal education, he served as substitute for the Chair of Physiology at the University of Essen, Institute of Physiology; as Assistant Professor (Priv.-Doz.) at the University of Göttingen, Institute of Physiology; and as Associate Professor (Apl. Professor) at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Institute of Physiology.
My research covers (neuro-) physiology with a special interest in (neuro-) physiology/(neuro-) pharmacology and cell signaling, using molecular and electrophysiological approaches as well as cellular imaging techniques.
Current projects include the intra-cellular calcium signalling as a target to overcome anti-cancer drug resistance.
