Spring Research Roundtable

  • April 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This edition of our quarterly Research Roundtable will focus on the unique speech and language challenges that Glut1 Deficiency patients often face. The communication difficulties are ranked by patients and families as one of the top symptoms that have the biggest impact on quality of life and also as one of the priority targets for treatment outcomes.

Dr. Jörg Klepper will share clinical insights from his years of treating Glut1 Deficiency patients and will also talk about a study he has underway to better understand the speech and language experiences.

Dr. Kristina Simonyan will share her expertise on the neural mechanisms of normal and diseased speech, especially in the context of dystonia and other movement disorders often experienced by patients with Glut1 Deficiency.
