Dr. Jeffrey Ekstrand is an assistant professor of Pediatrics in the division of Child Neurology.

Dr. Ekstrand’s clinical focus is the treatment of Epilepsy. He also engages in basic science and translational research studying the mechanisms of how epilepsy develops in the immature brain using model systems of prolonged status, febrile seizures, and neonatal birth injuries from hypoxic-ischemia. He is particularly interested in the role of neuronal injury/death and other alterations in the brain that contribute to the development of epilepsy.
