Neurophysiological and inflammatory biomarkers of seizures and brain injury in children

The purpose of the study is to better understand the role of inflammation among critically ill neonates and children with recent brain injury and among children with early onset epilepsy that is negatively impacting their development and learning. In addition, we are using advanced EEG technology to assess brain injury, seizures, and hopefully better predict outcomes.

I am extremely grateful to the CNF for their funding support! This grant will help to provide the foundation for a research career aimed at improving the lives of children with brain injury and epilepsy.
