Ronald Seese M.D., Ph.D.

Board Member at Large

Dr. Seese is a developmental neurologist at the Beeghly Campus of Akron Children’s Hospital. He obtained his baccalaureate degree in neuroscience at UCLA. He then obtained M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at University of California, Irvine. His Ph.D. dissertation work, entitled Memory Encoding: Impairment and Rescue in Mouse Models of Autism, helped him discover his own interests in childhood conditions affecting neurodevelopment.

Dr. Seese then moved east to complete clinical training in pediatrics, child neurology, and neurodevelopmental disabilities at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Now, in addition to seeing patients at Akron Children’s, he conducts research to better understand autism and other developmental disorders. He is a passionate community advocate of children with autism, which is what prompted his interest in serving as a board member of the Autism Society.
