Epilepsy Research

October 4, 2017 | By |

Since the 1990’s, more than a dozen new drugs, devices, and dietary therapies have become available to people living with epilepsy. Despite the benefits and reduced side effects these treatments have offered, the number of people living with epilepsy who cannot effectively control their seizures has remained at 30%, the same as it was more than two decades ago.

It is time to shake up the system with a new approach. Let’s change the system – together.

The Epilepsy Foundation Research Program supports the entire spectrum of discovery from idea to market and is focused solely on the needs of people with epilepsy. We help foster the development of the next generation of scientists and support research that leads to better treatments and care. We strive for excellence, innovation, and radical thinking to end epilepsy. Join our fight:
