Christina A. Gurnett, MD, PhD
Christina Gurnett, MD, PhD, has an interest in understanding the genes involved in inherited forms of epilepsy. Her current approach is to study large families with epilepsy or individuals with unusual chromosomal malformations.
Krzysztof Hyrc, PhD
Krzysztof Hyrc, PhD, is primarily interested in ionic mechanisms of excitotoxic neuronal cell death. He specializes in intracellular ion concentration measurements using optical techniques, particularly low affinity calcium indicators.
Kwee Liu Lin Thio, MD, PhD
The research interests of Liu-Lin Thio, MD, PhD, are cellular neurophysiology, inhibitory glycine receptors and ketogenic diet. He holds clinic weekly, is consultant pediatric epileptologist for the Pediatric Cerebral Palsy Center and serves on the Pharmaceutical, Diagnostics and Therapeutics Subcommittee at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Michael Wong, MD, PhD
The primary goal of the Wong lab is to understand biological mechanisms in the brain underlying epilepsy with the ultimate purpose of developing new therapies for epilepsy patients.
John Zempel, MD, PhD
By studying a model system of partial seizures which has been adapted to the magnetic resonance environment, allowing the measurement of electrical signals concurrent with imaging. Using conventional and newly developed magnetic resonance techniques, John Zempel, MD, PhD, and his colleagues have localized ongoing seizure activity and characterized the damage that occurs with seizures.
