Elizabeth Shashkova, BS

Brigham and Women's Hospital

Elizabeth is a research assistant at Brigham and Women's Hospital's epilepsy division. She primarily works on the observational study “Maternal Outcomes and Neurodevelopmental Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs” (MONEAD) which evaluates women with epilepsy to determine which anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) contribute to risk factors in pregnancy and child development. She also assists Dr. Page Pennell and Dr. Paula Voinescu in their clinical research within the BWH Epilepsy-Obstetrics program. Elizabeth’s current research focuses on therapeutic dose monitoring and the efficacy of postpartum AED tapers in pregnant women with epilepsy and how tapers influence outcomes of seizure frequency and clinical toxicity.
