Tracy Salazar, PhD


Dr. Tracy Dixon-Salazar is a neuroscientist, geneticist, and patient advocate. Her desire to get her Ph.D. was inspired by her daughter, Savannah, who developed intractable seizures at the age of 2, which evolved into Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) by the age of 5. She did her Ph.D. and postdoctoral work at UC, San Diego and it was during her research tenure, and after 16 years of watching daily, unrelenting seizures in her child, that she uncovered the driver of her daughter's illness and identified a novel precision therapy that improved her child's life. She serves as the Executive Director at the LGS Foundation.
