Epilepsy Research UK is the only charity exclusively dedicated to driving and enabling life changing, life saving research into epilepsy.

The research projects and fellowships we support are of the highest scientific merit and are subject to rigorous scrutiny, involving a Scientific Advisory Committee, independent expert opinion, interviews and peer review. Our pioneering clinical research discovers ways to advance the medical care and management of people living with epilepsy and our lab-based scientific projects investigate causes and methods for improved diagnosis, treatment and prevention. We aim to provide help for today and hope for tomorrow.

Alongside developing the next generation of epilepsy research leaders, we play a key role in capacity building the research community. Our internationally renowned Expert Workshop programme and dissemination activities aim to forge local and global collaborations. We also accelerate innovations that improve clinical practice and health policy through partnership working and advocating for further investment in research.

A life free from epilepsy is possible. Together we can achieve this through research.

Epilepsy Research UK is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 4873718.
