Epilepsy Research Matters

Brain and Futureneuro and Epilepsy Ireland logo

As part of National Epilepsy Week 2023, together with our colleagues in FutureNeuro - the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Chronic and Rare Neurological Diseases -  we hosted  a special in-person event highlighting recent developments in epilepsy research and discussing priorities for future directions in research.

The event featured leading scientists, clinicians and researchers investigating epilepsy in Ireland and highlighted some of the incredible research that is underway to drive new discoveries in epilepsy. 

We know that many people were unable to attend online but luckily we recorded the event and you can watch it back some of our speakers contributions in the videos below. 

Thank you to all those who attended on the night and of course to all our speakers for joining us at this special event. 

Together, we can achieve a society where no person's life is limited by epilepsy.
