Dr. Moshé is an authority on the mechanisms that underlie the development of epilepsy and on the consequences of the disease in infants and children. He is actively involved in several large, multicenter studies examining the outcomes of prolonged febrile seizures and absence epilepsy to identify predictive biomarkers of the course of these conditions and response to treatment.
A translational scientist, Dr. Moshé has developed and patented an animal model that replicates human infantile spasms, which can be used to identify novel treatments of this devastating condition. Dr. Moshé has served as president of the American Epilepsy Society, the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, and the Eastern Association of Electroencephalographers and is current president of the International League Against Epilepsy. He has received numerous honors and awards, including the American Epilepsy Society Research Recognition Award, Jacob Javitz Neuroscience Investigator Award from the National Institutes of Health, the Michael Prize, American Epilepsy Society research award, the CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy) Global Awareness Award for leadership in raising the international profile of epilepsy, the Pierre Gloor Award of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, and the J.E. Purkyne Honorary Medal for Merit in the BioMedical Sciences of the Czech Academy of Sciences. He is an elected member of the American Neurological Association and the American Pediatric Society.
