US Department of Defense Epilepsy Research Program (ERP): Longitudinal Risk Factor Award

The aim of this program is to develop an understanding of the magnitude of post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) within the military and to expand research into the basic mechanisms by which traumatic brain injury (TBI) produces epilepsy.

The intent of the Longitudinal Risk Factors Award is to  support a large-scale, prospective, longitudinal epidemiological research study that is relevant to the characterisation of PTE.

Research considering a pharmacologic intervention is specifically discouraged.
