In 2007, I played a key role in focusing NINDS research priorities on the cognitive, developmental, and behavioral co-morbidities of epilepsy and organized sessions at the American Epilepsy Society meeting to investigate these areas and identify research opportunities for improving patients’ outcomes. In 2013, I was Co-Chaired the NINDS-sponsored Curing Epilepsies conference and also organized and led the workshop, “Priorities in Pediatric Epilepsy Research: Improving Children’s Futures Today.” I was one of the initial founders of the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Consortium (PERC) which has grown to 40 centers in the US and is laying the foundation and creating the infrastructure for practice-changing clinical research to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of children with pediatric epilepsies.[Shorten text]
