Medically refractory epilepsy in children; epilepsy surgery; EEG; ECoG; functional mapping
Ravindra Arya, MD, DM, is a pediatric epileptologist with special interest in medically refractory epilepsy of childhood onset, epilepsy surgery and functional mapping. Children with epilepsy require multi-disciplinary care under supervision of a trained specialist for optimizing their management and to attain best possible outcomes.
Dr. Arya is also motivated towards bridging evidence gaps in patient care through clinical and translational research. He has diverse research interests in the field of childhood epilepsy. He has been principal investigator for two clinical trials: “Intranasal versus intravenous lorazepam for control of acute seizures in children: A randomized, open-labeled non-inferiority trial (NCT 00735527)”, and “Effect of low-dose oral folic-acid supplementation on phenytoin induced gingival overgrowth: A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial (NCT 00781196)”. The latter study provided class I evidence for efficacy of a vitamin (folic acid) to prevent a side effect of phenytoin, which is a widely used anti-seizure medication. He has also been principal investigator of an epidemiologic study looking at epilepsy in children with Down syndrome. This study was funded by Council for Scientific and Industrial Research of India.
Currently, he is principal investigator for a study aimed at developing and validating a novel methodology for language mapping in children undergoing invasive evaluation prior to epilepsy surgery, based on signal processing of corticograph data. He is also a co-investigator for other research projects including a retrospective study looking at comparative outcomes and their predictors in children undergoing vagus nerve stimulation and corpus callosotomy; a long term extension of the landmark Childhood Absence Epilepsy study; and a multicentric observational study on pediatric status epilepticus.

Child neurology; developmental pediatrics; autism; tuberous sclerosis
Dr. Capal’s clinical and research interests focus on children with autism spectrum disorders and related neurodevelopmental conditions. Current research projects include understanding the cognitive, behavioral, and language aspects of children with autism spectrum disorders and abnormal EEG but not always with concurrent clinical seizures. A natural extension of my research has led to interest in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), where autism, abnormal EEG, and seizures are frequent and interdependent. The genetic and molecular basis of TSC is well established, which provides an ideal platform for further investigation into the underlying mechanisms responsible and, in turn, discover new molecular-based targeted therapies. The TSC Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is the largest of its kind in the world, providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinical care to TSC patients of any age. This work led efforts that resulted in the first ever FDA-approved medical therapy for TSC in 2010 using the mTOR inhibitor everolimus. Our long-term goal is to refine and apply these and next-generation therapies for patients with TSC.

Tuberous sclerosis (adults and children); neuropharmacology; neurocutaneous disorders; general pediatric neurology
David Neal Franz, MD, was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. He received his undergraduate degree in history and literature from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.
After completing his training, he served as assistant professor of neurology and pediatrics at Wright State University before returning to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
He established the Cincinnati Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic in 1993, to assist in the medical care of patients who have or are suspected of having tuberous sclerosis. The purpose of the clinic is not to replace care from the child's pediatrician or family physician, but to assist the primary care physician in dealing with those aspects unique to tuberous sclerosis that affect the child's health or development. The basis of the clinic is the realization that people with tuberous sclerosis are different from other individuals who have epilepsy, learning disabilities, behavior problems, etc.
For too long, the unique problems found in this disease have been lumped together with similar disorders, despite the fact that research has shown that disorders of the brain, heart, kidney, and other organs in tuberous sclerosis are quite different.

Marielle A. Kabbouche, MD Child Neurologist, Division of Neurology 513-636-4222
Headaches; migraines; acute and inpatient treatment of intractable headache
Marielle Kabbouche, MD, received her training in child neurology at Vanderbilt University school of medicine. She moved to Cincinnati for a specialty training in pediatric headache medicine. The position was the first for a pediatric neurologist.
After her headache training, she stayed at Cincinnati Children's as faculty and an active member of the center with involvement in all academic as well as clinical and teaching aspect of pediatric headaches. Since that time, she has been proud to be part of the maturing center that gradually developed to be the largest and most academically productive pediatric headache program in the United States and worldwide. She has been a co- PI on multiple NIH grants since 2002, and has been involved in multiple pharmaceutical and clinical studies in pediatric and adolescent migraines.
Her career has been focused on acute treatment of intractable migraines in children in emergency room, as well as inpatient, settings.
As the director of the inpatient headache unit, Dr. Kabbouche was actively involved in setting an acute headache infusion center as well as an inpatient headache unit at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The headache acute care unit has been very productive in the last few years, seeing about 200-300 patients/year during peak seasons. The inpatient unit opened in July of 2011 bringing specialty care to headache patients with a team of six providers, fellows, residents and nurses. This approach to intractable headache care will have a great impact on patient’s outcome.
Dr. Kabbouche has over 25 publications and a track record of numerous book chapters and peer-reviewed papers, reviews, and abstracts in the field of headache medicine. She is also an editor of a pediatric headache book.

Darren S. Kadis, PhD 513-636-2577 email@example.com
Neuroimaging; epilepsy; language
Dr. Kadis received his PhD through the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, with a distinction in Neuroscience and training in clinical neuropsychology. He conducted his graduate and post-doctoral research at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, gaining experience with invasive (i.e., intracarotid sodium amobarbital procedure, electrocortical stimulation mapping) and newer noninvasive (e.g., fMRI, MEG) brain mapping procedures. His research is directed at understanding the typical organization of the brain, the role of early experience on brain structure and functional representation, and the vulnerability and plasticity of the brain in the context of early neurological insult. Currently, Dr. Kadis uses MEG in concert with structural neuroimaging and neuropsychological procedures to study speech and language representation and plasticity in the brains of children.
