JacSue Kehoe

The SPPIN laboratory deeply regrets to announce the death of JacSue Kehoe on 25 june 2019, at the age of eighty-three. JacSue spent decades working with the neurons of Aplysia californica, studying the post-synaptic nerve response. Among many other things, she discovered that one neurotransmitter can have multiple types of receptors, which could vary in level and type of response. She worked for the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), lately at the SPPIN, where she was an active researcher until shortly before passing away. Jacsue has made seminal contributions to neurosciences, and generously guided generations of young scientists.

JacSue was a woman pioneer, Philippe Ascher‘s loving wife and our friend.
