Professional Interests

Since 1979, Dr. Moshé’s research has focused on translational approaches to understand the mechanisms underlying the development of epilepsy and its consequences in infants and children. His laboratory has developed and patented an animal model that replicates human infantile spasms. In collaboration with Dr Aristea Galanopoulou, this model is being used to identify novel treatments of this devastating condition. His work has identified an endogenous brain circuit that can control the expression of seizures as a function of age and gender. In addition to his laboratory research, he is actively involved in several large, multi-center studies examining the outcomes of prolonged, febrile seizures (seizures occurring with fever) and absence epilepsy to identify predictive biomarkers of the course and response to treatment. In more than 20 years, Dr. Moshé has mentored numerous scientists and clinicians from around the world in clinical epilepsy and basic science epilepsy-related research.

 Dr. Moshé is active in numerous professional societies and elected President of the American Epilepsy Society, the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, the Eastern Association of Electroencephalographers, and past President of The International League against Epilepsy. He is an elected member of the American Neurological Association and the American Pediatric Society
