Dr. Cathrin Buetefisch's research is focused on improving the understanding of mechanisms underlying motor system plasticity and developing means to modulate plasticity with the clinical translational aspect of formulating rehabilitation strategies to improve motor function in neurological patients.
At Emory University Dr. Buetefisch was given the privilege to direct the Deep Brain Stimulation clinic which is a subspecialty in the movement disorder clinic. She is also participating in an inpatient neurorehabilitation consult service. Her professional service includes an editorial position for Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, the official journal of the American Society for Neurorehabilitation (ASNR), and membership on the Board of Directors of ASNR. Dr. Buetefisch reviews for the NIH study section ANIE and scientific journals.
Whilst maintaining extraordinarily active academic and service roles, she is also committed to teaching and mentoring of students and residents in basic science, clinical science and clinical neurology at the undergraduate, graduate, post- graduate and professional level.
