  • SUMMARY:
    Kristl Vonck is Head of the Department ‘Head and Skin’ at Ghent University in Belgium. She was trained at Guy’s Hospital, London, UK; Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA and the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. She is a fellow of the EAN and member of the EU Joint Task Force of the International League Against Epilepsy. She is a founding member of the international Neuromodulation Task Force for COVID-19. Her research interests include epilepsy, neuromodulation, bioelectronic medicine and neurophysiological home-monitoring of neurological disorders. In the translational research setting of the 4Brain Research team, her team investigates the mechanism of action, efficacy and side effects of several neurostimulation modalities. Both in animals and patients, crucial questions are investigated for the application of neurostimulation as a valuable treatment option for neurological disorders: stimulation parameters, open and closed loop neurostimulation applications, seizure detection and prediction algorithms, invasive versus non-invasive neurostimulation. Proof-of-concept and early innovative techniques for neurological monitoring@home are validated at the excellence Center for Neurofysiological Monitoring (CNM) of Ghent University Hospital before being investigated in a home environment. Kristl Vonck has published widely in international peer-reviewed journals >150 papers), has authored seven book chapters and has given 190 international presentations.

Kristl Vonck is Head of the Department ‘Head and Skin’ at Ghent University and full professor of neurology at the department of Neurology at Ghent University Hospital. Research interests include epilepsy, neuromodulation, bioelectronic medicine and neurophysiological home-monitoring of neurological disorders and is performed at the 4brain lab.
