Special Interest Group 2021: Epilepsy

November 5, 2021

Session Title: Epilepsy Genetics: Bringing Basic Science to the Clinic

Description: Speakers will discuss the epilepsy genetics from preclinical research to clinical applications. Preclinical research focused on the development of antisense oligonucleotide therapy, precision medicine in rare genetic disorders, somatic variants in the brain and non-monogenetic epilepsy will be discussed. Finally, we will discuss the utilization of genetics in clinical practice.

Chair: Kathryn Davis, MD, MS, FAES, University of Pennsylvania

Co-Chair: Chloe Hill, MD, MS, University of Michigan

Objective(s): 

  • Utilize genetics data in epilepsy patients
  • Understand ongoing ASO genetic trials
  • Understand how to diagnose and treat patients with underlying genetic causes of their epilepsy
