Research involving humans
All relevant regulatory and ethical approvals are required if an ERUK-funded study involving human participants is funded.
Research involving animals
As a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), Epilepsy Research UK supports the principle of using animals in research. We believe it should only be used when there is no alternative but that it is an important part of the research process which helps to advance understanding of serious health conditions and to develop better treatments.
