CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy)

January 3, 2020

Overview

Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) is a nongovernmental agency that funds research in epilepsy to find a cure and promote research. The organization was founded in 1998 by a small group of parents who were frustrated with their children’s epilepsy and has since raised over $60 million to fund epilepsy research and has awarded grants for over 230 projects in 15 countries.

There are detailed and well organized overviews of research projects and programs so that people can understand the latest efforts in epilepsy research.
