Current Clinical Research in Epilepsy

Clinical research trials search for new ways to prevent, understand and/or treat disease. The goal of these trials is to see if a new treatment, procedure, or device works and is safe to use.  Participating in a research trial, as either a healthy volunteer or a patient volunteer, is an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
