Eric Marsh, MD, PhD
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute

About the Speaker: Dr. Eric Marsh received his Medical Degree at New York University (NYU) School of Medicine, as well as PhD in physiology and neuroscience at NYU Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. He completed his Internship and pediatric residency at NYU and moved to CHOP for a Child Neurology residency.  After residency, he completed a clinical neurophysiology/epilepsy fellowship and research a post-doctoral fellowship in the labs of Drs Amy Brooks-Kayal and Jeff Golden.  He stayed on as faculty at Perelman School of Medicine/CHOP in the Departments of Neurology and Pediatrics. He is now a Professor of Neurology at University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and CHOP, Clinical Director of Penn Orphan Disease Center, and Director of the CHOP CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder (CDD) Center of Excellence clinic.

Dr. Marsh has particular clinical interests in developmental epilepsies, neurodevelopmental disorders, and cortical malformations.  His research has focused strongly on the impact of intraneuronal development and altered excitability on epilepsy, analyzing intracranial EEG recordings to better localize the epileptic zone and network, and performing natural history and electrophysiological biomarker studies.  He has also been involved in a number of clinical trials for children with the developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (DEEs), including CDD, Dravet, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, and Rett syndrome.
