Centers Without Walls for Collaborative Research in the Epilepsies: Developing Disease Modifying or Prevention Therapies (U54)

The ultimate goal of this Epilepsy Center Without Walls (CWOW) is to facilitate development of a first-in-class disease modifying or prevention therapy for epilepsy. The CWOW award(s) will support the clinical and/or preclinical studies necessary to overcome the key limitations that prevent proposed interventions from immediately entering translational development or clinical testing.

A required shared resource Core will enable additional investigators outside the CWOW to benefit from the expertise and infrastructure built in the CWOW. The award will also support public engagement activities among investigators, people with epilepsy, caregivers, and epilepsy-related voluntary organizations to support these partnerships in clinical research and future trials.
