"The work of the AEP directly aligns with the aspirations of SAHMRI. Namely, research that delivers the right interventions, to the right people, at the right time in their lives to optimise health; is translational and delivers health outcomes with global impact to communities. This  project provides a focus to fundamentally change the way epilepsy is diagnosed, managed and treated for all Australians: to create a life without seizures."

"The AEP will provide a new approach to managing mood disorders. Platform models of healthcare are an option we must explore if we are to apply precision medicine to mental health."

Michael Shaw


Managing Director, Siemens Healthineers

"The AEP enables the strong scientific collaboration between Siemens Healthineers and the Florey institute to continue in our research and translation into medical technology to ultimately shift the current paradigm in Epilepsy. It is only by expanding precision medicine that we offer a greater human impact. That is why the AEP is so essential."
