2017 - Member of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM)
2007 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom
His primary scientific interests are in Epilepsy, Genetics, Pediatrics, Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus and Generalized epilepsy. His Epilepsy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine, Central nervous system disease and Electroencephalography. His study in Childhood absence epilepsy extends to Genetics with its themes.
His Pediatrics research integrates issues from Seizure types, Psychiatry, Myoclonus, Age of onset and Neurological disorder. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Exon, GABRG2, SCN1B and Myoclonic epilepsy. His studies deal with areas such as Idiopathic generalized epilepsy, Gene mutation, Genetic architecture and Dravet syndrome as well as Generalized epilepsy.
Samuel F. Berkovic mainly investigates Epilepsy, Genetics, Pediatrics, Neuroscience and Internal medicine. His Epilepsy research includes themes of Central nervous system disease and Electroencephalography. His Pediatrics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Surgery, Seizure types, Dravet syndrome, Psychiatry and Age of onset.
Specifically, his work in Neuroscience is concerned with the study of Idiopathic generalized epilepsy. In his study, Autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy is strongly linked to Endocrinology, which falls under the umbrella field of Internal medicine. His research in Temporal lobe intersects with topics in Ictal, Magnetic resonance imaging, Hippocampal formation and Pathology.
Epilepsy, Genetics, Gene, Pediatrics and Exome sequencing are his primary areas of study. Samuel F. Berkovic combines subjects such as Mutation, Missense mutation and Bioinformatics with his study of Epilepsy. Samuel F. Berkovic has researched Mutation in several fields, including Cortical dysplasia and Germline.
The concepts of his Germline study are interwoven with issues in Germline mutation and Neuroscience. His Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy research extends to the thematically linked field of Genetics. In his work, Incidence is strongly intertwined with Etiology, which is a subfield of Pediatrics.
His primary areas of investigation include Epilepsy, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Gene and Exome sequencing. His work carried out in the field of Epilepsy brings together such families of science as Exome and Electroencephalography. The study incorporates disciplines such as Batten disease, Disease, Mutation, Proband and Mutation in addition to Bioinformatics.
Samuel F. Berkovic has included themes like Computational biology and Neurotransmission in his Gene study. The various areas that Samuel F. Berkovic examines in his Exome sequencing study include Alternative splicing, Exon, DNA sequencing and Genomics. The Generalized epilepsy study combines topics in areas such as Genetic data, Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, Immunology, Focal Epilepsies and Genetic testing.
