2014 Epilepsy Pipeline Conference

On June 5-7, 2014 in San Francisco, CA, the Epilepsy Therapy Project, an initiative of the Epilepsy Foundation presented the 4th Biennial Epilepsy Pipeline Conference 2014, held at the Hyatt Regency, San Francisco.

Showcasing the most promising epilepsy therapies from healthcare companies dedicated to pioneering and advancing drugs, biologics, technologies and devices for epilepsy and seizures, this year's conference featured the third annual "Shark Tank" competition, in addition to a day designated for people with epilepsy, families and advocates. The conference brought together decision-makers with a stake in the field of epilepsy treatment, therapeutic innovation and product development. Speakers and attendees included emerging biotech and medical technology companies, major pharmaceutical and device companies, and researchers and innovators at the cutting-edge of epilepsy and CNS treatment advances.
