CURE Epilepsy

Organization Overview

CURE Epilepsy’s mission is to find a cure for epilepsy, by promoting and funding patient-focused research.  CURE Epilepsy was founded in 1998 by a group of parents desperate for answers to save their children. Since then, CURE Epilepsy has led a dramatic shift in the epilepsy research community from simply treating seizures to enhancing understanding of underlying mechanisms and causes so that cures and preventative strategies can be found. CURE Epilepsy’s research program is cutting-edge, dynamic, and responsive to new scientific opportunities and directions through both investigator-initiated grants and unprecedented scientific programs and initiatives.  Since our founding, CURE Epilepsy has raised over $78 for research that has been invested in 260+ research grants in 16 countries worldwide
