Grants to USA, Canada, and International established and early-career investigators for research focused on epilepsy. Interested applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to the full proposal. Funding is intended to support transformative projects that address prevention, elimination, and disease modification.
The CURE Epilepsy Award reflects CURE’s continued focus on scientific advances that have the potential to truly transform the lives of those affected by epilepsy, with prevention and disease modification as critical goals. Key priority areas for the award include: 1) Basic mechanisms of epilepsy; 2) Acquired epilepsies; 3) Pediatric epilepsies; 4) SUDEP; 5) Treatment-resistant epilepsies; and 6) Sleep & epilepsy.
CURE strongly encourages multidisciplinary, collaborative projects, especially those that include investigators and expertise from fields outside of epilepsy.
The following priority areas reflect CURE’s focus on advances that have the potential to truly transform and save lives. Prevention, disease modification, and elimination are critical goals and consistent with CURE's mission.
Funding requests may include salary support for the Principal Investigator (PI), co-PIs, technical staff, supplies, animal costs, publication fees and travel to an epilepsy-related conference if the PI is presenting his/her CUREfunded research. Limited equipment purchases that are required to complete goals will be considered.
