Research Report 2016-17

Young Epilepsy coordinates and funds research into the causes, treatments and impact of all aspects of childhood epilepsy. We want to secure the best outcome for everyone affected by the childhood epilepsies and we know the best way to do this is through research.

Over the past year we have initiated 11 new research projects and been responsible for 88 peer-reviewed publications of primary research, as well as a further 31 publications of chapters, reviews and commentaries of expert opinion. As a wider research unit, we continue to work towards improving the recognition of epilepsy as a healthcare priority in every part of the world.
