Research

The Yale Epilepsy Program is a world center of research into the causes and treatment of epilepsy. Our team of investigators includes over 20 primary faculty members at Yale, in addition to a large number of students, fellows, and other staff. Much progress has been made, but our investigators continue the effort to find a cure for epilepsy.

The faculty members and staff in the epilepsy program are engaged in both clinical and basic research studies. The Yale Epilepsy Program provides a unique environment where basic science studies that advance the scientific knowledge of epilepsy can be translated to clinical studies that benefit patients and their families. Our latest epilepsy research advances are discussed at an annual Research Retreat. To support our ongoing efforts to cure epilepsy, join our team, and make a gift towards epilepsy research.
