Study Description

WHAT IS THE HEP STUDY?
The Human Epilepsy Project is a group of registry based studies for people living with epilepsy.
The Human Epilepsy Project is jointly supported by the Epilepsy Foundation and the Epilepsy Study Consortium, both nonprofit patient and science advocacy organizations. Scientists, clinicians and families have joined together to collect information about people with epilepsy to help better understand the challenges of living with seizures, to learn how people respond to different treatments and to identify markers (or ways) for improving treatment success. This information is critical to accelerate the development of new treatments, prevention strategies and cures for the many types of epilepsy.
