About Jessica Schulte, MD, PhD

Dr. Jessica Schulte is a board-certified neurologist who treats patients with brain tumors, spinal cord tumors and neurofibromatosis (a genetic disorder of the nervous system). She focuses on targeted treatments and clinical trials for glioma, a type of tumor that originates in the brain and spinal cord. Her research interests include optimizing transitions between pediatric and adult neuro-oncology care, and understanding young adult survivorship needs.

As an assistant professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine, she trains medical students, residents and fellows in neurology and neuro-oncology.

Dr. Schulte completed a fellowship in neuro-oncology at the UC San Francisco Brain Tumor Center and a residency in neurology at the Columbia University Neurological Institute in New York. She earned her medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago where she also completed doctoral work in neurobiology, investigating the migration of brain cells during neurodevelopment and in the formation of brain tumors.

In her free time, Dr. Schulte spends time with her family at the beach, and enjoys photography and Pilates.
