Biography

As a pediatric neurologist, my clinical practice focuses on the comprehensive neurologic care of infants, children and adolescents. Having completed fellowship training in clinical neurophysiology, my expertise focuses on the evaluation and management of epileptic and non-epileptic (stress-induced) seizures, as well as neuromuscular disorders, with particular skill in performing electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG). I am one of the panel neurologists in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at the Women and Children�s Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB). As a physician for the inpatient and outpatient neurology service, I attend to the needs of patients who present to WCHOB with a variety of neurologic symptoms.

In addition to epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders, my clinical interest includes in the young. I am fascinated by the various factors that may predispose infants and children to cerebrovascular ischemia. I am further interested in autoimmune and demyelinating processes within the nervous system.

Research Interests

Epilepsy, Stroke, Demyelinating Disorders, CNS Autoimmune Disorders.

Biography

I had graduated as MBBS doctor from Armed Forces medical College, Pune, India and then further specialized in paediatrics from the same college in 2012. Presently, I am intended to undergo fellowship training in Neonatology in 2015.
Although paediatrics was not my choice of subject for specialization, it just happened to me and it has probably clicked. My field of interest is neonatology, besides pediatric neurology, critical care and behaviour and developmental paediatrics.
Considering the poor neonatal status of my country, I am determined to contribute my life in upbringing the neonatal status of my country.
I have been actively involved in editorial assignments, including the official journal of Shree Birendra Hospital, official newsletter of Nepal Paediatric Society, and official Journal of Nepal Paediatric Society.
I have a wife and a kid and love to spend my time with them forever….
Besides the academics, I have deep passion for photography and music.

Brian D Moseley


Neurology
Loma Linda University
Address:USA
Biography

Brian D. Moseley, MD is a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Neurology at UCLA. He completed his medical school training at Loma Linda University and completed his Neurology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. While at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Moseley studied autonomic changes (changes in heart rate/rhythm and oxygenation) that occur during seizures in adult and pediatric patients undergoing EEG monitoring. He explored how such changes may relate to sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP).He has also investigated the use of new monitoring devices in Epilepsy Monitoring Units such as noninvasive cerebral tissue oximeters.

>Dr. Moseley has previously published articles in Neurology, Epilepsia, Epilepsy Research, Epilepsy & Behavior, the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry, and the Journal of Child Neurology. He is a reviewer for such journals as Neurology, Epilepsy Research, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry, and Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology. He is currently an editor of the Journal of Neurology & Translational Neuroscience. He is also a member of the Neurology Inpatient Oversight Committee at UCLA.

Research Interests

Dr. Moseley has begun to explore epileptogenicity (the presence and severity of an epilepsy condition). He is keenly interested in how certain types of EEG signals detected by intracranial electrodes (such as pathologic high frequency oscillations) may relate to epileptogenicity and be affected by known antiseizure interventions.

Biography

Dr. Rausch, MD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Child and Adolescent Health at Columbia University Medical Center. He completed his pediatric residency, chief residency, and general pediatrics fellowship at New York-Presbyterian (NYP)/Columbia University Medical Center. He is interested in developing strategies for promoting universal evidence-based lifestyle changes that focus on prevention. He is further interested in the epidemiology of the development of obesity co -morbidities, including insulin resistance and diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension and dyslipidemias. He is focused on developing methods to screen for and manage co-morbidities, especially in busy clinical practices and acceptable to families most at risk for health disparities (e.g. Latino, lower income). Strategies that he is exploring include changing health care provider behavior through prompts in the EMR, identifying patients most at need for screening for co-morbidities, methods for managing those co-morbidities within a primary care setting, and the interface between the clinic and the community.

Research Interests

Dr Rausch�s research interests focus on the prevention and management of pediatric obesity and its long-term impact of health.
