Shilpa Kadam

Research Scientist, Neuroscience

Associate Professor of Neurology Director of the Pre-clinical In-vivo Electrophysiology Core, Kennedy Krieger Institute

The laboratory is focused on translational neuroscience research investigating the mechanisms underlying epileptogenesis in models of developmental disabilities, with the goal to discover new interventional therapies. We utilize a novel systems neuroscience approaches using in-vivo qEEG, biosensors and evoked potentials in models of developmental neurological disorders, epilepsy and sleep disorders. We have established a newly characterized developmental model of ischemic neonatal seizures for their non-responsiveness to traditional first-line GABA agonists with the goal to understand mechanisms underlying the emergence of refractoriness, find novel therapies to reverse it and to prevent the occurrence of long-term co-morbidities commonly associated such disorders. Our research has been funded by the Epilepsy Foundation and the NICHD.

Dr. Kadam completed her PhD work in the field epilepsy research in the laboratory of Dr. F. E. Dudek. This was followed by a two year post-doctoral fellowship training in the Department of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Kadam has a medical degree from India with three years of experience working in a Neuro-ICU at a leading tertiary center in Pune, India. Our collaborations at Hopkins have led to novel insights in the field of Rett syndrome, autism, in-utero inflammation, nanoparticle drug delivery studies and novel imaging research.
