2017 Research Grant Recipient Publication

DSF is pleased to share that 2017 research grant recipient David R. Hampson, PhD, had his paper on gene therapy published in the journal “Gene Therapy.” Dr. Hampson’s grant, Exploring gene therapy to treat sudden unexpected death and other pathological features of Dravet syndrome had a goal to create and test viral vectors containing the DNA coding for several different proteins, such as sodium channel subunits, in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome, that he hypothesized could stop or reduce seizures and/or SUDEP.

The publication can be found here. You can also read a lay-person’s summary by DSF Research Review Contributor, David C. Fry, PhD here.
