We study the mechanisms of pediatric epileptic encephalopathy, sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), and cardiac arrhythmia linked to mutations in voltage-gated sodium channel genes.

We study the mechanisms of pediatric epileptic encephalopathy, sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), and cardiac arrhythmia linked to mutations in voltage-gated sodium channel genes. Experimental models in our lab include transgenic mouse lines and human patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell neurons and cardiac myocytes.
