Elizabeth Felton, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Neurology
Elizabeth Felton, MD, PhD, received her PhD in biomedical engineering in 2007 and her medical degree in 2009, both from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health's Medical Scientist Training Program. She completed a neurology residency in 2013 and an epilepsy fellowship in 2015, both at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
She is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology with a subspecialty in epilepsy.
As a Centennial Scholar, Dr. Felton plans to develop a clinical research program focusing on dietary therapies for adults with epilepsy including assessing neuropsychological outcomes and determining if there are biomarkers to assess treatment response.
Dr. Felton also plans to investigate women with epilepsy to determine if there is a relationship between abnormalities in brain connectivity and hormonally mediated seizure patterns which may lead to menstrual dysfunction and infertility. She also plans to mentor engineering and medical students as a way to increase diversity in these fields.
Dr. Felton joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in July 2015, and became a Centennial Scholar in January 2016.
