Our Objectives

Epilepsy Research UK invests in research into all areas of epilepsy, giving priority to those areas which have the potential to produce results in immediate problem areas. These include research into:

  • ameliorating the accuracy of diagnosis
  • improving treatment
  • increasing quality of life of the patient.

Epilepsy Research UK also supports basic scientific research. It operates a fellowship scheme to encourage scientists to pursue a career in epilepsy research. It organises scientific meetings in order to foster collaboration between researchers.

The aim is to support innovative research, of the highest scientific merit, that has the greatest potential for patient benefit.
