John M. Schreiber, M.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, graduated cum laude from University of Maryland School of Medicine in 2006. While there, he won the Marshall L. Rennels Award for Excellence in Neuroscience and was a member of AOA and the Gold Humanism Honor Society. He completed Pediatrics and Child Neurology training at Children’s National Health System in 2011.

Before returning to Children's National and Pediatric Specialists of Virginia (PSV) in 2013, he served as an Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology Fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and volunteered as a Child Neurology consultant for the Undiagnosed Diseases Program there. He continues as a co-investigator in a protocol at the NIH employing transcranial magnetic stimulation designed to examine the effects of a novel therapeutic agent in succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency, a pediatric neurotransmitter disorder frequently associated with epilepsy. Furthermore, he is the Principal Investigator at Children's National in our Neurogenetics Registry protocol, for the multi-disciplinary SCN8A Encephalopathy clinic, in a protocol examining cardiac strain in patients with status epilepticus or medically refractory epilepsy, and is the site Principal Investigator for the Epilepsy Genetics Initiative.

His primary clinical and research interests are in the evaluation and management of epilepsy, specifically in rare genetically-mediated epilepsies and in epilepsy surgery. He established and directs the Epilepsy Genetics program at Children's National, the Refractory Epilepsy Clinic at PSV, and serves as the associate director of electroencephalography for Children's National.

Dr. Schreiber also volunteers for several rare disease organizations, community service projects, lectures/ panels, and support groups.
