CURE: Prevention of Acquired Epilepsies Award 2015

Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) seeks novel research projects of relevance to the prevention, treatment and cures of acquired (post-insult) epilepsies including:

  • the cellular, molecular, and systems-level understanding of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms;
  • specific approaches to modify the development of acquired epilepsy;
  • animal models of acquired epilepsy; and
  • investigations of the impact, natural history, and epidemiology of acquired epilepsy.

CURE strongly encourages collaborative multidisciplinary projects, especially those that are inclusive of investigators and expertise from fields outside of epilepsy.
