In addition to providing excellent and comprehensive multidisciplinary care to our patients, the Boston Children's Hospital Epilepsy Genetics Program is also actively involved research.
Our main research initiatives are:
- Developing zebrafish models of epilepsy to study novel genes in epilepsy but also as a high-throughput model to be used for the screening of potential targeted therapeutics for genetic epilepsies. One of the chief goals of the program is to bring genetic discovery from the lab back to patients in the form of clinical trials.
