Areas of Interest

1) Tri-glial maladaptation in neurodevelopmental disorders and epilepsy

2) Molecular, cellular, and circuit mechanisms of epileptogenesis and hyperexcitablity in the brain.

3) Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy and mTOR hyperactivation

Clinical Interests

Dr. Wang’s primary clinical interests involve the medical and surgical treatment of refractory epilepsy, MRI-negative epilepsy, and the pharmacology of anti-seizure medications. He believes the ultimate goal of epileptologists is to improve a patient’s quality of life and restore their self-confidence, which is accomplished by knowledge and theory in epilepsy on the one hand and practical wisdom on the other.
