Research Recognition Award
With our annual Research Recognition Award of CHF 25,000 we support scientific projects. In this way we help improve the understanding of epilepsy and enable treatment processes to be derived or further developed.
“The start-up funding from the Epilepsy League has paid off enormously. We have learnt a great deal about the genetic causes of epilepsy and can now recognise many forms of epilepsy better and earlier. Moreover, this knowledge has enabled better, targeted treatment to be developed for some patients during several follow-up studies.” (Prof. Johannes Lemke, 2011 Research Grant recipient)
