Ringel, MD, talks with Tracy Dixon-Salazar, PhD, associate research director at Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, about her journey from being a stay-at-home mom to going back to school — earning an associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and finally a PhD in neurobiology at University of California, San Diego — that led her to sequencing and identifying mutations in her daughter Savannah and finding an off-label treatment, verapamil (a calcium channel blocker) that helped reduce her daughter’s seizures by 95 percent.
