Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary research focus is the study of EEG in early onset epileptic encephalopathies, primarily those with a genetic cause.

My clinical practice includes many patients with intractable epilepsies with genetic causes, infantile spasms, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and focal epilepsies.

Current clinical practice utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric epilepsy and comorbidities. Dr. Millichap has over 40 peer-reviewed medical publications and serves as the Section Editor of the Resident and Fellow Section of the journal Neurology and the Editor of Pediatric Neurology Briefs. As a member of the academic faculty of Northwestern University, he is involved in the education of trainees and grant-funded clinical research concerning epileptic encephalopathies and epilepsy genetics.
