Epilepsy Research UK

Epilepsy Research UK is the only national organisation exclusively dedicated to funding research into all areas of epilepsy.

Founded 1991

  • Mission statement

    Epilepsy Research UK was formed by the merger of the Epilepsy Research Foundation and the Fund for Epilepsy on 31st March 2007. We are the only national organisation exclusively dedicated to funding research into all areas of epilepsy. We give priority to those areas which have the potential to produce results in immediate problem areas, including: research leading to improvements in the accuracy of diagnosis; and research into improving the treatment and quality of life of the patient.

    Developments in drug therapy and medical scanning, along with major breakthroughs in the study of the human genome, mean that great progress has been made in understanding the causes of epilepsy in recent years. Even greater advances will be made in the coming years and the research that Epilepsy Research UK funds will be at the forefront of developments to control, and perhaps even cure, epilepsy.
