Funding Acknowledgements

Supported by NINDS U01 NS 053998, as well as planning grants from the Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures (FACES) Foundation and the Richard Thalheimer Philanthropic Fund. We would like to acknowledge the recruitment contributions of the EPGP Community Referral Network (CRN). The CRN consists of healthcare professionals not paid by the EPGP grant who refer eligible families to EPGP. A list of individual contributors can be found at www.epgp.org. We are also grateful for the efforts of the clinical coordinators, the site principal investigators, neurologists, and support staff at our EPGP clinical centers who have contributed to the recruitment, data acquisition and storage, and extensive phenotyping. Finally, and most importantly, we extend our sincere appreciation to the patients with epilepsy and their families who have contributed to this research effort.
