EXPLORING SOMATIC MUTATION IN FOCAL EPILEPSIES
Grant number: 1079058 | Funding period: 2015 - 2017
Epilepsy is a common disease in the Australian population affecting 3 percent of individuals. It incurs lifelong medical, social and educational costs, and in some cases can be fatal. It is a large burden on public healthcare in Australia. Focal epilepsies are the most common type of seizure that arise from specific parts of the brain. This study has two aims and a future strategy relevant to gene discovery and clinical testing for focal epilepsy.
