William Stacey

William Stacey, M.D., Ph.D.

Professor, Neurology


Dr. Stacey received both his medical degree and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He completed a Neurology residency at University Hospitals of Cleveland. He then went to the University of Pennsylvania, where he completed a clinical fellowship in Epilepsy, then became a clinical Instructor while concurrently completing a post-doctorate in basic epilepsy research. While there, he also received a Master's of Translational Medicine. Dr. Stacey's clinical and research interests are integrally connected: he cares for adult patients with epilepsy and has an active research lab researching methods to develop improved, implantable seizure control devices. His research involves expertise in both Biomedical Engineering and clinical epilepsy, with the goal that these techniques may uncover new methods of treating seizures in people with uncontrolled seizures.

Areas of Interest

EEG, epilepsy and intraoperative monitoring programs and developing a research program focused on understanding mechanisms underlying the basic physiological generators of epileptic seizures and translating this work into novel device therapies to stop seizures.
