For Partners

Partnering for Success

CURE welcomes all collaborative partners to advance EGI – a community resource.

Who are our partners?
Our current and developing partnerships include medical institutions, industry partners, patient advocacy groups, and family foundations, both in the United States and abroad. Many of our partners have a specific interest in epilepsy. Our medical and industry partners help to enroll patients in EGI and deliver results, and our non-profit partners provide a patient voice that helps direct progress in the care of people with epilepsy.

Partners Maximize EGI’s Impact
Our partners maximize EGI’s impact by spreading the word about EGI, its goals to help people with epilepsy, and its plan to advance epilepsy genetics. By helping their clients and constituents to understand the purpose, objectives, and function of EGI, they help to bring patients, doctors, and researchers together in a cooperative way to improve our understanding of the causes and consequences of epilepsy.

Partners Raise Awareness and Accelerate EGI
Genetics is advancing our understanding of epilepsy in ways never seen before. Our partners help us to educate the public about epilepsy and the importance of genetic testing in advancing personalized medicine. By sharing the information in our Genetic Testing in Epilepsy Fact Sheet, our partners expand EGI's impact for people with epilepsy.

Partners Build a Better EGI
By partnering to advance EGI, we are in a position to build a more comprehensive database. This, in turn, means greater success for patients eager to know the cause of their epilepsy, doctors who want to do what is best for their patients, and researchers who seek to advance the practice of medicine using a more precise, personalized approach.
