Our Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) provides guidance and direction for the organization’s research and programs. It plays a key role in guiding and prioritizing research projects and funding, assists with web content, guides, and commentary, and is committed to furthering our mission to help children reach their full potential after epilepsy surgery.
The SAB is comprised of internationally recognized or promising researchers and specialists with particular interest in the functional effects of pediatric epilepsy surgery. It is comprised of leaders in research, clinical practice, and advocacy who have made significant contributions to the fields of pediatric epilepsy and epilepsy surgery, cerebral palsy research, neuro-rehabilitation, education, and related fields. Members of the SAB will represent the various research and clinical specialties that are encompassed by the many facets of pediatric epilepsy, epilepsy surgery, and body systems and brain circuits affected by epilepsy or epilepsy surgery, including, but not limited to neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-anatomy, kinesiology, orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, opthalmology, neuro opthalmology, endocrinology, anatomy, kinesiology, and other aligned professions. The SAB will consist of 5-20 members, who have been invited to serve by the organization’s Executive Director.
The full inaugural SAB will be formed by the end of 2018.
