Research - Epilepsy

Our philosophy

The NUH Epilepsy and Seizures team has been actively involved with national research projects since 2018. Our aim is to improve the understanding and treatment of epilepsy and related seizure disorders. We hope to achieve this through clinical research that answer the important and relevant questions about how everyday clinical practice can be developed to meet the ends of patients, carers and families living with these conditions.
