Principal Investigator

Kathryn A. Davis, MD, MS, FAES


Dr. Kathryn Davis is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Associate Director of the Center for Neuroengineering and Therapeutics at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the Medical Director of both Penn’s Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and Epilepsy Surgical Program. Her training in clinical epilepsy and biomedical research represents over a decade of dedication to her career goal: to utilize both the advancing fields of invasive neurophysiology and neuroimaging to better localize epileptic networks in medication refractory epilepsy patients. It is her hope that improving localization will enable epileptologists to better assign individual patients to the most efficacious therapy, for example, seizure control devices, resective surgery, or continued medical management.
