Grant Opportunities

CURE 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.

The 2018 CURE Epilepsy Award priority areas reflect CURE’s continued focus on scientific advances that have the potential to truly transform the lives of those affected by epilepsy, with prevention and disease modification as critical goals.

 

In 2018, CURE will issue one request for proposals for the CURE Epilepsy Award.
