Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Epilepsy

Ingrid E. Scheffer mainly focuses on Epilepsy, Genetics, Mutation, Pediatrics and Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus. Her Epilepsy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Internal medicine, Autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy and SCN1B. Her work in Genetics covers topics such as Bioinformatics which are related to areas like Etiology.

Her studies in Mutation integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology and Central nervous system disease. Ingrid E. Scheffer has researched Pediatrics in several fields, including Psychiatry, Encephalopathy, Seizure types, Age of onset and Neurological disorder. Her studies deal with areas such as Exon, GABRG2 and Myoclonic epilepsy as well as Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus.

Her most cited work include:

  • Revised Terminology and Concepts for Organization of Seizures and Epilepsies: Report of the ILAE Commission on Classification and Terminology, 2005-2009 (3024 citations)
  • ILAE Official Report: A practical clinical definition of epilepsy (1947 citations)
  • ILAE classification of the epilepsies: Position paper of the ILAE Commission for Classification and Terminology (1414 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Epilepsy, Genetics, Pediatrics, Dravet syndrome and Mutation. Her Epilepsy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Missense mutation and Bioinformatics. Her study focuses on the intersection of Pediatrics and fields such as Intellectual disability with connections in the field of Autism.

Her Dravet syndrome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in SCN1B and Seizure types. In her study, Myoclonic epilepsy is inextricably linked to Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, which falls within the broad field of SCN1B. She regularly ties together related areas like Internal medicine in her Mutation studies.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Epilepsy (95.96%)
  • Genetics (58.26%)
  • Pediatrics (33.05%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Epilepsy (95.96%)
  • Genetics (58.26%)
  • Pediatrics (33.05%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary scientific interests are in Epilepsy, Genetics, Pediatrics, Intellectual disability and Missense mutation. Her Epilepsy study improves the overall literature in Neuroscience. Her Genetics research focuses on Myoclonic epilepsy and how it relates to Locus.

Her study in Pediatrics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epileptic spasms, Cohort, Autism spectrum disorder and Dravet syndrome. Her Intellectual disability study incorporates themes from Drug Resistant Epilepsy, Cognition, Retrospective cohort study, Autism and Exon. Her work carried out in the field of Missense mutation brings together such families of science as Dystonia and Germline.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Ultra-Rare Genetic Variation in the Epilepsies: A Whole-Exome Sequencing Study of 17,606 Individuals. (78 citations)
  • Keeping people with epilepsy safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. (59 citations)
  • A set of regulatory genes co-expressed in embryonic human brain is implicated in disrupted speech development (58 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Epilepsy, Genetics, Pediatrics, Mutation and Dravet syndrome. Her Epilepsy research includes elements of Encephalopathy, Intellectual disability, Autism spectrum disorder, Hypotonia and Movement disorders. Her study involves Gene, Missense mutation, Phenotype, GABRG2 and Exome, a branch of Genetics.

The GABRG2 study which covers Genetic variation that intersects with Exome sequencing. Her research in Pediatrics intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Febrile seizure, Seizure types, Immunization and Epileptic spasms. Her Dravet syndrome research incorporates themes from Placebo, Internal medicine, Cognition and Cannabidiol.
