Epilepsy – EP14K: Gene Discovery in 4,000 Epilepsy Genomes


Although it is clear that there is a strong genetic component for epilepsy, there are still only a few genes known. The Epi4K project will identify new genes and genetic pathways in epilepsy and will directly benefit individuals with epilepsy and their families through improved diagnostic, prognostic and recurrence risk information.  Dr. Mefford is leading this project in conjunction with Drs. Lowenstein and Eichler.
