Epilepsy is a complex brain disorder characterized by recurrent seizures that affect millions of people worldwide. While the causes of epilepsy are diverse, advancements in genetic research have shed light on the role of genetics in both inherited and sporadic forms of the condition. Genetic testing has emerged as a promising tool not only for accurate diagnosis but also for tailoring effective treatment strategies. In collaboration with CURE Epilepsy, this seminar aims to educate about the significance and implications of genetic testing in epilepsy management.
