Would you like to help further research into epilepsy?

Interested in taking part in epilepsy research? Then look no further. Professor Henry Houlden, from University College London, is looking for volunteers to take part in his research.  He aims to recruit as many people with epilepsy as possible who are willing to give a blood sample so that their genome can be sequenced.  This will help to identify any previously unknown gene mutations which may lead to the development of epilepsy. The research is even now helping to change the way in which patients are tested in the future as it has already found some unusual epilepsy genes.  If you would like to take part in this piece of research then please contact: ambreen.tariq@nhs.net or h.houlden@ucl.ac.uk
