  • Juliet Klasing Knowles

    Juliet Klasing Knowles

    Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently working in the laboratories of Drs. Michelle Monje and John Huguenard at Stanford using genetic and optogenetic models of epilepsy to study the impact of recurrent seizures on myelin. This is a potential novel mechanism contributing to epileptogenesis, cognitive dysfunction and developmental delay in children with epilepsy. Concurrently, I am conducting translational research related to white matter/myelin abnormalities in neonatal and other forms of pediatric epilepsy in collaboration with Drs. Courtney Wusthoff and Kristen Yeom of Pediatric Epilepsy and Pediatric Neuroradiology.
    This work is supported by NIH/NINDS, the American Epilepsy Society, the CURE Foundation and the Stanford Child Health Research Institute.
