CURE Pediatric Epilepsies Award
2-year award up to $250,000

There are many known epilepsy syndromes that occur in the pediatric population. These epilepsies are often debilitating and difficult to treat with currently available therapies. CURE seeks novel research projects of relevance to any or all of them, including: (1) the cellular, molecular, and systems-level understanding of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms; (2) investigations of the impact, natural history, and epidemiology; and (3) novel treatments which may impact progression of the disease. CURE strongly encourages collaborative projects, specifically those that introduce investigators and expertise from fields outside of epilepsy.
