Dr. Musto’s scientific goal is to identify a potential biomarker and preventive therapies for epilepsy.
Recently, He has received an award from the Commonwealth Health Research Board of Virginia to investigate a novel neuroinflammatory mechanism that lead to spontaneous seizures and could bring a better understanding epilepsy and potential new medicines.
He has been elected as a Chair of Epilepsy Group of Virginia Neuroscience Initiative. The vision of this group is that Virginia become one of the most recognized states in the US for clinical, education, research and awareness in epilepsy. The mission is to promote an efficient and effective collaborative effort in those areas, identifying needs and strength, and opportunities to improve the quality of life for a patient living with epilepsy and promoting awareness about epilepsy and providing assistance to those with the disorder.
He has been bestowed with a prestigious award - Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society (FAES) – a lifetime professional honor in recognition of his accomplishments and dedication to excellence in epilepsy. Congratulations Dr. Musto on all the accomplishments!
