Why Clinicians & Patients Should Be Excited about Epilepsy Genetics

07 Jul 2022
Brain, Spine & Mental Health Theatre

Over the last 5, even the last 2 years, the findings from research into epilepsy genetics have been extraordinary. With AI and big data, geneticists, statisticians, scientists, and epileptologists have created and are constantly building a far better, extensive, detailed understanding of individual patient epileptogenesis through Whole Genome and Whole Exome Sequencing.

Our improved understanding of the etiology of the genetic epilepties enables us to improve accuracy of patient prognosis, provide earlier interventions, and improve patient Quality of Life.

Learn from Torie how the field of epilepsy genetics is an exciting one for both professionals and families and how her work into bridging the gap between parties has led to some rather enthralling discoveries.
