The Epilepsy Phenome/Genome Project is the largest study ever created to understand how genetics influences epilepsy type, outcome and response to treatment. Funded by the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, EPGP will help shape the future of clinical care of people with epilepsy. Researchers from 21 major epilepsy centers around the United States, Canada, Australia and Argentina will collect blood samples and detailed seizure histories on a group of people with specific types of epilepsy.
For the project to be successful, it needs to be a huge collaboration of all people with epilepsy, and that’s where you come in. If you or a family member are eligible, we urge you to participate in this study.
