Jillian McKee, MD, PhD, is an epilepsy and neurogenetics fellow in the Division of Neurology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She attended McGill University for her undergraduate studies and completed medical school and earned a PhD in computational neuroscience at the University of Chicago, employing machine learning techniques to understand the neural underpinnings of visual learning and decision making. Dr. McKee then moved to Philadelphia, where she completed pediatrics and neurology residencies as well as fellowships in epilepsy and neurogenetics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. McKee’s research focuses on using multi-omics and electronic medical data to understand disease trajectories in genetic epilepsies, including SYNGAP1-related disorders, and employing machine learning techniques for outcome prediction and the development of targeted therapeutics.
