Dr. Loddenkemper's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Loddenkemper "My Area of Excellence is Investigation. As a pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, and clinical neurophysiologist, with specific training in seizure monitoring and treatment, I spend approximately 40% of my time in investigation, 20% in direct clinical care, 10% in teaching activities, and 30% in significant supporting activities. My early research experience as a resident and fellow included observational and interventional studies on clinical seizure manifestations and treatment. Following my 2008 appointment as Assistant in Neurology at Boston Children's Hospital, I expanded my research to include circadian variation of seizures and used this information to develop a patient-oriented medication treatment schedule. My research is focused on identifying the factors that determine epileptic encephalopathies and status epilepticus as well as functional outcome later in life. Repetitive seizures and epileptic encephalopathy can impair development, plasticity and cognitive function of eloquent areas including language and memory. Seizure frequency reduction and seizure freedom, in particular after epilepsy surgery, have been shown to improve neurocognitive and developmental outcome. By identifying biomarkers that indicate predictors of cerebral damage and developmental outcome in epileptic encephalopathies and status epilepticus, we intend to reduce the occurrence of brain damage and later developmental disabilities and aim to identify novel therapeutic approaches. In summary, within my Area of Excellence in Investigation I have an outstanding record of successful and productive research in areas of high relevance for our pediatric epilepsy population. My expertise and experience as an innovator and teacher place me in an excellent position to continue to make important contributions to the field directly, as well as to exert future influence in the field through the researchers I train.""
