Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy

Research will lead us to a CURE

Our Story


Since its inception in 1998, CURE has raised more than $70 million to fund epilepsy research and other initiatives that will lead the way to cures for the epilepsies. CURE awards grants for novel research projects to prevent epilepsy related to post-traumatic epilepsy, advancing the search for a cure, eliminating treatment side effects, and reversing deficits caused by frequent seizures. CURE funds grants for young and established investigators and to date has awarded over 240 cutting-edge projects in 15 countries around the world.

Our mission is to find a cure for epilepsy, by promoting and funding patient-focused research.
