Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) seeks novel research projects of relevance to any or all pediatric epilepsies, including:
- the cellular, molecular, and systems-level understanding of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms;
- investigations of the impact, natural history, and epidemiology; and
- novel treatments which may impact progression of the disease.
CURE specifically encourages studies that may not be currently fundable by other agencies because of their preliminary or unconventional nature. Priority will be given to innovative projects that address the severe, intractable pediatric epilepsies as well as collaborative projects, especially those that are inclusive of investigators and expertise from fields outside of epilepsy.
Funding & Duration
Requests may be made for up to US $250,000 in direct costs over 2 years. Indirect costs are not supported.
This award is available to both established and early career investigators exploring cutting-edge approaches to curing the pediatric epilepsies. International applicants and applicants with expertise outside epilepsy are welcome
