Epilepsy Canada (EC) is requesting research proposals from established researchers to conduct investigations that explore the basic mechanisms of epileptic seizures. We are looking for a widespread assortment of submissions. In particular, we?re interested in submissions that are high risk in nature that if successful would have near term applicability in the treatment of epilepsy and hopefully lead to finding a cure. Epilepsy Canada is also receptive to receiving proposals that represent multi-year projects. We encourage high risk proposals that would develop preliminary data sufficient to make applications to other funding bodies that support more extensive programs. Applications having a more clinical focus are also encouraged but they should be experimental in nature and have clear hypothesis that potentially leads to better clinical outcomes.

Please see the Sponsor's website for full submission details.
