Joshua Hack On KXCI’s “Thesis Thursday”

Joshua Hack works in the lab of Dr. Michael Hammer studying the rare pediatric disease SCN8A Epilepsy caused by changes in the gene that encodes for a specific sodium channel (SCN8A) located in the center of the brain. The focus of his research is to develop a model to predict the severity of disease outcomes in patients based on where in the gene their changes occur.
