Biography

Jaideep Kapur M.B.B.S., PhD, is the Eugene Meyer III Professor of Neuroscience, Professor of Neurology & Director of UVA Brain Institute.

Dr. Kapur provides care to epilepsy patients as a member of FE Dreifuss Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at the University of Virginia and serves as the Director of Neuroscience Center of Excellence. Dr. Kapur has a long-standing interest in understanding the neurobiological mechanisms underlying prolonged self-sustaining seizures, called status epilepticus. His laboratory studies rapid plasticity of GABA and glutamate-mediated neurotransmission. Another area of research is regulation of seizures by hormonal fluctuations. Grants from National Institutes of Health, Epilepsy Foundation, CURE epilepsy foundation and the Department of Defense support his research.

He has served on numerous grant review panels for National Institutes of Health, CURE Epilepsy foundation, Epilepsy Foundation and Epilepsy Research Foundation. He served as the President of the American Epilepsy Society in 2010.

NESC 3960: Research in Neuroscience
Credits: 3
Students in Neuroscience major are expected to participate in active research, supervised by a faculty research mentor. The course grade is based on 10 hours/week lab work toward achieving term goals that are determined individually at the beginning of the term. Students are expected to submit a Term Plan one month after the first day of classes and a Progress Report two weeks before the last day of classes.
COGS 3960: Cognitive Science Research
Credits: 3
This course aims to provide faculty-supervised research experience. A faculty mentor should be identified before enrollment. S/U grading. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisites: Faculty supervisor permission.
