Research at Cain Labs

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.


Trends in Epilepsy Research

This section will feature exciting new basic research or clinical studies published on childhood epilepsy research. A concise summaries of these studies will be provided, which we hope will be a valuable and comprehensive source of information for patients, their families and friends and other researchers.
