Run for Epilepsy Research UK >

Epilepsy Research UK promotes and supports basic and clinical scientific research into the causes, treatment and prevention of epilepsy. We are the only charity in the UK dedicated to funding independent research exclusively into this condition.

The work of Epilepsy Research UK is focussed on researching into the causes, treatment and prevention of epilepsy with the aim of identifying new means to control the condition and improve the quality of life of those with epilepsy. Each year new research projects are funded at universities and hospitals around the UK. Epilepsy Research UK is the only national charity dedicated to funding epilepsy research.

In 2018 were were able to invest over £1 million into twelve new research projects that we believe could make a real difference to the lives of people with epilepsy. These projects are looking into many aspects of epilepsy and its treatment including:

·      investigating the cellular, molecular and genetic bases of epilepsy

·      developing the use of a wearable device to forecast seizures


·      brain stimulation as a new treatment option for juvenile myoclonic epilepsy

By running for Epilepsy Research UK you can help us push forward developments to better understand, control, and perhaps even cure, epilepsy.
