CURE - Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy It's Time We Found a CURE CURE Epilepsy Research

GrantsCURE awards grants for novel research projects that address finding the cures for epilepsy and address the goal of “no seizures, no side-effects.”

Specifically we fund research that works to understand and prevent epilepsy, identify disease modifying or eliminating therapies, eliminate SUDEP, and reverse deficits caused by frequent seizures.

Up to $5 million Advancing Understanding of Infantile Spasms (IS) Infantile Spasms (IS) is a rare childhood epilepsy syndrome that can have profoundly negative long-term developmental and cognitive consequences. CURE supports collaborative, milestone-driven efforts that will advance the understanding of the underlying pathology of IS and lead to the development of a disease-modifying therapy or cure.
