Join us for the next in our series of Research Roundtable webinars when we’ll be hearing from the experts and people with lived experience of acquired epilepsy.
Epilepsy can be caused by many factors, including other medical conditions and brain injuries. In this month’s Research Roundtable webinar, we’ll learn about the impact of acquired epilepsy and how our research is increasing understanding and improving treatments, to ultimately help a broad range of people living with epilepsy.
The session is open to everyone and will be held at 12pm on Wednesday 30th June. So, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy, or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.
Epilepsy Research UK webinars are often filled before the event, so register now to avoid disappointment!
Our fantastic guest speakers include:
- Anna – dedicated Epilepsy Research UK supporter, who will share her experience of developing epilepsy as a result of a head injury after her car was hit by a careless driver.
- Mr Ashan Jayasekera – 2018 Emerging Leader Fellow at Newcastle University, who will discuss his project investigating surgical techniques used to treat seizures in patients with a brain tumour.
- Dr Frances Wiseman – 2013 Pilot Grant Awardee at University College London, who will discuss her research investigating epilepsy in Down syndrome with Alzheimer’s disease and explain the link between epilepsy and Down syndrome.
- Prof Sarosh Irani and Prof Arjune Sen – will explain how their ERUK-funded research at the University of Oxford helped evidence a link between autoimmunity and some types of epilepsy, leading to new targeted treatment options.
There will be a Q&A session with the speakers after the presentations, so please send any questions you may have to our Head of Research, Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett here.
