Dr. Goldberg studies how genetic variation in ion channels leads to underlying brain circuit dysfunction in epilepsy and other disorders.

The purpose of this study is to create a biorepository to support our ongoing and future studies on ultra-rare pediatric neurodegenerative disorders.

Meet our featured Faculty Spotlight scientist for May, Rebecca Ahrens-Nicklas, MD, PhD, assistant professor of Pediatrics at CHOP.

The Ortiz-Gonzalez Lab investigates whether mitochondrial dysfunction is a common, underlying factor in rare pediatric neurodegenerative disorders.

The Goldberg Lab Investigates mechanisms of cerebral cortical circuit function and circuit dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders

Research in the Akizu Lab aims to better understand human brain complexity in health and disease, with the ultimate goal of uncovering therapeutic targets for pediatric neurodegenerative disorders.

The Ahrens-Nicklas lab combines translational studies in patients with molecular, biochemical, and electrophysiologic studies working with animal models to develop novel therapies for rare inherited pediatric disorders.
