Cain Labs Research News

Investigators in the Cain Labs are primarily focused on understanding the basic mechanism underlying childhood epilepsy and the intellectual developmental disorders often associated with these disorders.  Working in concert with pediatric epileptologists at Baylor College of Medicine, they strive to understand the causes of seizures in children at the cellular and molecular levels.  Ultimately, the goals are to identify novel targets for therapeutic interventions to stop seizures. 

In this section, we provide succinct and easy-to-understand synopses of recent studies published by members of Cain labs.
