American Epilepsy Society Awards Investigators for Early Career Research


The American Epilepsy Society (AES) has awarded 25 early career scientists and clinicians with fellowships or grants to support their work in epilepsy research. The award recipients include pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees, junior investigators establishing their independent programs, and clinicians and fellows pursuing additional training for a career in research.


As part of the AES’s commitment to support those starting their careers in epilepsy research, the number of fellowship/grant recipients has nearly doubled since 2015. Eight awards were made possible by the support of funding partners, while another four awards were supported in full by the Epilepsy Foundation. One award is supported by the Epilepsy Study Consortium and three awards are supported in part by either the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance or Wishes for Elliott.
