Starting from his appointment in 2012 as a neurologist in the Maastricht University Medical Center+, Rob Rouhl focussed on epilepsy. His research interests are the new diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities for patients with epilepsy. As such he is involved in the deep brain stimulation for epilepsy and epilepsy surgery program of the Academic Center for Epileptology, a cooperation between MUMC+ and Kempenhaeghe. His research in the diagnostic spectrum includes new techniques like whole exome sequencing and auto-antibody testing. In his clinical research line post-stroke epilepsy is one of the points of gravity. He is an active board member of the Dutch League against Epilepsy, and of the Scientific Section of this League.
