Jeffrey Loeb, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Loeb was nominated for the four-year term by the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan.
“I look forward to helping the Epilepsy Foundation carry out its mission to support both patients with epilepsy as well as the research mission of reducing the burden or eliminating seizures from our patients,” said Loeb, who also serves the Hiller ALS Center at the School of Medicine.
The board provides professional guidance and expertise in implementing policies and programs revolving around research and advocacy for the Epilepsy Foundation. Members ensure that medical and scientific aspects of foundation activities are “at the forefront of current knowledge and professional standards,” according to the organization.
In addition to Dr. Loeb’s election, Brien Smith, M.D., of the Henry Ford Health System, was named vice chair of the board. Jack Parent, M.D., of the University of Michigan, also serves on the 49-member board, bringing the state’s contingent to three members.
