Epilepsy Research UK invites you to a live Research Roundtable on Epilepsy Treatments: Past, Present and Future. Join us to learn about the exciting research being carried out to discover and develop new treatments for epilepsy.
This month on the #ERUKResearchBlog we have been taking an in-depth look at treatments for epilepsy, and early findings from our SHAPE EPILEPSY RESEARCH NETWORK show improved treatments to be the top research priority. During this Research Roundtable, we’ll hear more from the experts on why getting the right treatment matters so much, and how research is essential in order to make a life free from epilepsy a reality.
The session will be held at 2 pm on Tuesday 24th November 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:
- Professor John Paul Leach, University of Glasgow, who will discuss the history of antiseizure medication development – through both accident and design
- Professor Richard Baines, University of Manchester, who will discuss his current Epilepsy Research UK-funded work and the present-day drug discovery pathway, from lab bench to bedside
- Dr Rob Wykes, University College London and University of Manchester, who will discuss his research using a material commonly used in the electronics industry, and how this may lead to exciting future treatments for epilepsy
There will be a short Q&A with each speaker, so please send any questions you may have to our Head of Research, Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
