Benchmarks for Epilepsy Research


To assess progress in epilepsy research and help set an agenda for future years, NINDS hosts Curing the Epilepsies conferences in partnership with epilepsy advocacy and professional organizations. These conferences inform the development of Benchmarks for Epilepsy Research, which reflect priorities shared across the epilepsy community for research toward clinically meaningful advances in understanding and treating the epilepsies. Since their initial development in 2000, the Benchmarks for Epilepsy Research have brought attention to goals such as preventing epileptogenesis, addressing aspects of epilepsy beyond seizures, and confronting the challenge of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP).
