The team at the AEP has been working hard for the last 12 months in anticipation of this very date!
On Monday 29th June we will submit our proposal to the Department of Industry to bid for up to $100M of Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) funding to commence the Australian Epilepsy Project.
Successful applicants will be announced in September 2020.
Without this ground breaking project, people living with seizures will continue to be unsure about their diagnosis, uncertain about their next seizure, undergo repeating cycles of trial and error medication adjustments, be exposed to risk of dangerous medication side effects, live with under diagnosed and under treated mental health problems, experience reduced workforce participation, and wait many years to access potentially life changing surgery.
We know this project is worth the investment and we know we can do it.
Back us. Be proud that you did.
