Applying for Conference Support 

We believe in creating open channels of communication between people living with epilepsy, their families, advocates, researchers, healthcare professionals, industry, and investors. To accelerate research and care forward, it must be shared, modeled upon, and expanded.  
If you need support for hosting a conference, reach out to us. We have set aside limited funds to sponsor ongoing conferences in our community. We will prioritize conferences that satisfy the following 3 criteria: 

  1. An agenda with highly innovative topics on epilepsy 
  2. Inclusion of both basic and clinical science perspectives 
  3. Conference hosts provides travel support for young investigators and members of under-represented groups so they can attend the proceedings
