We aim to achieve more than just funding. Epilepsy Research UK is building the next generation of epilepsy scientists by attracting emerging leaders, both scientists and clinicians, and encouraging them to pursue a career in epilepsy research.
Our funds support individual scientists and clinicians based in university departments, medical schools and hospitals throughout the country. The impact of their work is global.
Alongside this we continue to inspire collaboration, bringing the epilepsy research community together through our global expert workshops, events and scientific meetings to further innovation through the cross-fertilisation and sharing of ideas. We work closely with other associated condition charities to share knowledge and skills to ensure that epilepsy is recognised in government health and social care policy.
