Join us for our final Research Roundtable webinar of 2021 when we’ll be hearing from research experts and people with lived experience on the topic of epilepsy in childhood.

There are around 112,000 children and young people in the UK living with epilepsy, often linked with other neurological conditions. This month, we have been looking at how early diagnosis and genetic screening can lead to improved treatments and reduce the impact of epilepsy on young people’s lives.

The session is open to everyone and will be held at 12pm on Tuesday 30th November. So, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.

Dr Tim Tierneywho will discuss how his fellowship project with Epilepsy Research UK and Young Epilepsy will develop a ‘bedside brain scanner’ to provide enhanced surgical planning at a younger age.

Dr Joseph Symondswho will explain how findings from his 2013 Endeavour Project investigating genetic and autoimmune testing technologies could help improve diagnosis and treatment of childhood epilepsy.

LET’S DRIVE CHANGE

The UK Epilepsy Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is NOW OPEN. This national survey will collate the views of the entire UK epilepsy community. We are seeking the input of all those working in epilepsy and all those affected by epilepsy including, friends, families and carers. This is a unique opportunity for you to have your say in driving and shaping the future of research. For more information and to take the survey, click the image below:
