Grants of up to $50,000 to USA individual medical researchers employed at a university, research or medical institution for epilepsy research that generates initial data leading to more extensive projects. The goal of this initiative is to create the basis for more extensive projects that will generate knowledge to ultimately improve the lives of persons with epilepsy.
The broad focus of the morbidity portion of this program includes:
1) Identification of somatic comorbidities in epilepsy that occur more than expected among controls, including but not limited to diabetes, gastrointestinal bleeding, chronic lung disease, congenital cardiac abnormalities, heart failure, and pneumonia; and
2) Associations between somatic comorbidities in epilepsy and epilepsy outcomes, including quality of life in epilepsy, seizure remission, stigma and other outcomes. The mortality portion of the program is focused upon potentially preventable causes of death in epilepsy, such as accidents, suicide and SUDEP.
Applicants are encouraged to examine risk factors for these causes of death in epilepsy; as well as interventions to decrease the presence of risk factors for these causes of death where risk factors have been identified.
Grant funds may be used for salary support for personnel directly engaged in the project, consumable supplies and services, and travel essential to the conduct of the research.
