Through the incredible efforts of our supporters over the last twelve months, we are delighted that Epilepsy Research UK was able to make £1.3 million available for our 2020 grant awards. This is the single largest amount we have awarded in almost thirty years of operating.

Below we have profiled each of the exciting and vital new research projects selected by our Scientific Advisory Committee. This year we received over 70 high quality applications, and after a rigorous review process we awarded two Fellowships, four project grants, three pilot studies, and our first ever Céline Newman Bursary. Quite simply, this research would not take place without your support.

You can read the full details of these grants in our Summer Focus newsletter. Also inside, Professor of Translational Neuroscience at UCL School of Pharmacy Stephanie Scourge discusses how for people living with epilepsy and researchers alike, ERUK grants provide a “lifeline”.
