Melissa Barker-Haliski, Ph.D.

Dr. Barker-Haliski focuses on preclinical research in the evaluation and characterization of investigational therapies for epilepsy. Barker-Haliski is interested in special patient populations, including patients with pharmacoresistent epilepsy. Her research seeks to understand the impact of initial antiseizure drug monotherapy on subsequent pharmacoresistance to better guide the pharmacotherapeutic management of newly diagnosed epilepsy. Further, she is interested in differentiating the available, well-established animal models from next-generation animal seizure and epilepsy models to best identify more effective therapies for the treatment and prevention of epilepsy.
