As part of an academic medical center, we participate in basic, translational, and clinical research to better understand how the mechanisms of ketogenic diet therapy provides neuroprotective effects.

We collaborate with Elaine Hsiao Lab at UCLA to determine how gut microbiota is altered by the ketogenic diet. Emerging studies indicate multifactorial host responses, such as altered gut microbiota, can protect against seizures in preclinical studies.
