The number of applications for funding received annually by Epilepsy Ireland shows that there is huge interest and expertise in this country for epilepsy research and Epilepsy Ireland will where possible continue to support this research.

Since the launch of the scheme, 1 in 5 of all applications for research receive funding. We have been able to fund just under half of all applications deemed 'fundable' by our Research Committee and international peer review. 2 in 3 submissions to the Health Research Board under the HRB/MRCG Joint Funding Scheme receive funding.

Our ability to support important research in the future depends on our ability to raise adequate funds, so donations or fundraising initiatives to support research are always welcome. For further information on Epilepsy Ireland research and how you can support it, please contact Peter Murphy at 01 4557500 or email
