    Career Summary

    Dr Philippe Major finished his residency in Pediatric Neurology at the CHU Sainte-Justine in 2006. He then completed a fellowship in Pediatric Epilepsy at the Massachusetts General Hospital in 2008, where he was responsible for the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Clinic. He is now in charge of the first Canadian TSC clinic.

    His research interests focus mainly on the characterization of the epileptogenicity and functional implications of malformations of cortical development, particularly those associated with TSC. He takes advantage of novel investigation tools such as the magnetoencephalography (MEG) and the diffusion tractography (DTI). He is also interested about the various clinical manifestations related to TSC, mostly to its neurological impacts (epilepsy, intellectual and developmental impairments, autistic spectrum disorder, and psychiatric involvement).
