Back to CURE website November  
Frontiers in Research
On November 18, our new seminar series heads to Baylor, Texas where CURE Grantee Peter Crino, MD, PhD, will discuss his latest research findings on a possible connection between HPV and brain malformations. This breakthrough discovery may lead to a definable cause and treatment for focal cortical dysplasia type IIB (FCDIIB). Dr. Crino’s work has significant ramifications for how we think about this type of childhood epilepsy and could lead to new approaches to treatment and prevention.

If you’re able to attend our lecture in Texas, keep up with us on Twitter using #CUREBaylor!
