Siddharth Jain, MBBS, MD

Assistant Professor of Neurology

Phone: 314-454-6120

My career goal is to understand the impact of neonatal seizures on neurodevelopment and post-neonatal epilepsy and develop therapeutic strategies to reduce the burden of seizures and epilepsy in high risk neonates. I am involved in clinical care of neonates at risk for neurological injury, especially those with acute seizures and subsequent epilepsy as a part of the multidisciplinary neonatal neurology team. I am also currently involved in clinical research using EEG as a tool to develop biomarkers predicting neurological injury and brain health in the high risk neonatal population.
