Implementing Precision Medicine In Epilepsy
Grant number: 1104831 | Funding period: 2016 - 2020
I aim to understand the genetics of the epilepsies. Through detailed analysis of different types of epilepsy, and associated features such as intellectual disability and autism, I will describe new epilepsy syndromes, and together with gene discovery, implement novel targeted therapies. This translational program will transform clinical practice by informing diagnosis, prognostic and genetic counseling, and lead to targeted precision therapies to improve outcomes for each patient.
