Our interest is in the genetic basis of childhood and adolescenr epilepsy syndromes.

Up to 5% of the population will have an epileptic seizure at some point during their lives, with the majority occuring early in childhood. Genetic factors are thought to play an important role.

Our goal is to decipher these factors.

On the following pages we have put together some information for you regarding the field of epilepsy genetics and our research group.
