One third of people with epilepsy live with uncontrolled seizures and significantly more live with less than optimal seizure control and/or unfortunate side effects from their treatment. The Epilepsy Foundation works to ensure the field of seizure research remains vibrant, innovative and enduring.

The Foundation dedicates its research efforts toward 1) bringing new clinicians into the field; 2) funding new therapies that will bring change in treatment and management for people with epilepsy in a timeframe that matters; 3) encouraging exploration of key issues such as self-management, cognitive issues and researching the impact of public awareness; 4) and bringing attention to exciting ideas and therapies through our Seal of Innovation award.
