Epilepsy Action Australia recognises and supports the invaluable contribution research makes to the improvements in management of epilepsy and seizures. Medical research offers the best opportunity to learn, transform and improve thousands of lives.
Research into epilepsy:
- Can lead to significant improvements in the long term for people with epilepsy.
- Epilepsy is under-researched and can benefit from our involvement.
- Australia conducts world class research – especially in the field of medicine.
We have working relationships and collaboration with Australian universities, teaching hospitals and global research institutes.
From time to time we conduct surveys to stay in touch with what people with epilepsy want, need or experience. This information can also be used to improve understanding and epilepsy management.
