Rachel Kuperman graduated from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Physics, and later earned her medical degree from the UCSF School of Medicine with residency and fellowship in pediatric neurology and epilepsy, and began practicing at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland. Her 10 years at the hospital sparked a desire to find a better solution for epilepsy treatment, as about half of pediatric neurology involves epilepsy, one of the most common and expensive neurological disorders. Caring for children with epilepsy highlighted the management challenges. She became the CEO and co-founder of Eysz, a startup that aims to transform epilepsy care.
