Our team at the Danish Epilepsy Centre are aiming to help improving diagnosis for individuals with severe genetic epilepsy through genetic testing, and to help raising awareness of genetic epilepsies. Making a genetic diagnosis has many implications for management and counseling, and help us to accurately document the natural history of genetic epilepsies. First step towards precision medicine is precision diagnosis!
The overall aim of our research is to unravel the underlying mechanisms of genetic epilepsies, to understand correlations with clinical symptoms and to find new treatment options.
