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 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 several clinical trials in epilepsy.

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 medical director of electroencephalography for Children's National.

Dr. Schreiber also volunteers in community service projects, lectures/panels, support groups and national committees. He serves on the advisory board for several rare disease organizations and the Epilepsy Foundation.
