Academic Bio

Francis M. Filloux, M.D. is the Chief of Pediatric Neurology at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, UT where he directs a vibrant, growing subspecialty group dedicated to the care of children with neurological disorders throughout the Intermountain West. He has been the Program Training Director for the Pediatric Neurology residency program, and is an active clinician and educator. Dr. Filloux’ current scholarly interests include pediatric neurology education, health care quality and improvement with reference to the neurological care for children, and the seizure and neurological characteristics of children with congenital genetic syndromes.

Dr. Filloux received his undergraduate education at the University of California, San Diego and his M.D. from University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine. After completing postgraduate training in pediatrics and neurology with specialization in child neurology at the University of Utah, he served as a post-doctoral fellow in neuropharmacology under the direction of James Wamsley, Ph.D. During the first phase of his academic career he studied the neurochemical development of the basal ganglia and the ontogeny of calcium channels in vertebrate brain. He has developed specialized expertise in the evaluation and care of children with movement disorders, including Tourette syndrome and related conditions.

He currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Child Neurology and continues to find enjoyment in teaching medical students, residents and colleagues in the principles of neurological evaluation and diagnosis and in the breadth of clinical problems in pediatric neurology. His greatest professional satisfaction relates to the recruitment and training of bright young pediatric neurologists here at the University of Utah.
