Ei2: My Brain Map Challenge

View the Request for Proposals

In our 2017 community survey, many of you said that understanding the causes of epilepsy should be a top priority for researchers.

You spoke. We listened.

On September 6 and 7, 2018, the Epilepsy Innovation Institute (Ei2) hosted an innovation workshop to assess the state of the science on personalized brain network mapping in epilepsy. The workshop convened multiple stakeholders including people impacted by epilepsy, neuroscientists, basic scientists, clinicians, mathematicians, engineers, and industry representatives. Conversations centered on what is currently possible, what are potential future directions, and what critical infrastructure is needed to move the field forward.

Ei2 is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals for the My Brain Map initiative to fund pilot studies (up to $200,000) that would propose novel exploratory ways to model seizure propagation in a personalized brain network model.

Submissions opened on March 15, 2019.

The deadline has been extended to July 26, 2019.
