Epilepsy Research UK invites you to a live Research Roundtable on epilepsy in childhood. Join us to hear about some of the exciting research taking place across the UK on the epilepsy surgery pathway and the underlying causes of autoimmune-associated epilepsy.
During the session, we’ll hear from ERUK-funded clinicians and scientists and a ‘Young Rep’ from our charity partner, Young Epilepsy.
The session will be held on Tuesday 2nd February at 2pm and is open to everyone. So, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.
All previous Epilepsy Research UK webinar places have been filled before the event so register now to avoid disappointment!
Our fantastic guest speakers include:
• Dr Hanna Kovshoff, University of Southampton, who will discuss her team’s current ERUK-funded work on the paediatric epilepsy surgery pathway and how they are incorporating the views of children and their families in treatment decisions.
• Dr Sukhvir Wright, Aston University and Birmingham Children’s Hospital, who will be talking about autoimmune-associated epilepsy, where seizures might be caused by the body’s immune system interfering with brain cells.
• Anoushka, Young Epilepsy ‘Young Rep’, will discuss her experience of growing up with epilepsy.
There will be a Q&A session with all three speakers after the presentations, so please send any questions you may have to our Head of Research, Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
