About Us

The Epilepsy Research Institute serves as the central hub for the epilepsy research community.

The Epilepsy Research Institute serves as the central hub for the epilepsy research community. Our mission is to radically advance research into the causes, prevention and treatment of epilepsy and associated conditions. The Institute aims to strengthen the epilepsy research ecosystem by driving strategic investment and developing partnerships and collaborations between academia, the NHS, industry, funders, patient groups and people affected by epilepsy. Central to all we do is a culture of advocating and actioning the research priorities of people affected by epilepsy.

Our strategic priorities

Our research themes

Underpinning our strategy are six themed research programmes, each with a task force group led by leading UK scientists and clinicians. These research themes are driving a programme to secure large-scale research investment which will feed into an overall roadmap for research into epilepsy. 

The Institute is building an ecosystem that will attract the best researchers, foster an ambitious and inclusive culture of collaboration and enable research into epilepsy to flourish.
