Cure GABA-A | Recommended Physician Meet and Greet | Dr. Juliet Knowles

Join us for an educational session with Dr. Juliet Knowles, MD, PhD, Cure GABA-A’s Recommended Physicians at Stanford University.

Dr. Juliet Knowles will provide valuable insights into the clinical presentation of GABR Variants and the latest advancements in current treatments. As a distinguished researcher, Dr. Knowles leads a dynamic lab at Stanford focusing on the mechanisms underlying pediatric epilepsy. Her research group is particularly interested in understanding generalized epilepsies, monogenic epilepsies, and developmental and epileptic encephalopathies. Notably, her lab recently uncovered an unexpected contribution of activity-dependent myelination to the progression of generalized epilepsy (J.K. Knowles et al, Nature Neuroscience, 2022).

Currently, the Knowles lab is investigating whether similar mechanisms are at play in various forms of genetic epilepsy, including GABA-A related epilepsy. Dr. Knowles, in addition to her research role, is a dedicated clinician providing specialty care for children with genetic and challenging-to-treat forms of epilepsy, making her a highly recommended physician in this field.

Join Cure GABA-A and Dr. Juliet Knowles on 4/22/2024 at 11am PST for an educational and insightful session.

If you are unable to attend in person, rest assured – the session will be recorded and made available on the Cure GABA-A YouTube channel for your convenience.

Join us in our shared mission to enhance the lives of patients with GABA-A Variants and contribute to a brighter future.
