CURE - Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy It's Time We Found a CURE CURE Epilepsy Research

GrantsCURE awards grants for novel research projects that address finding the cures for epilepsy and address the goal of “no seizures, no side-effects.”

Specifically we fund research that works to understand and prevent epilepsy, identify disease modifying or eliminating therapies, eliminate SUDEP, and reverse deficits caused by frequent seizures

More than 88 cents of every dollar contributed to CURE is invested in cutting-edge research program activities.
