Our epilepsy research is number one

Epilepsy Society's research group - in collaboration with UCL Institute of Neurology and UCLH NHS Foundation Trust’s National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery - has been ranked as the world leading epilepsy group.

Work carried out by the organisations has topped a new league published today by Expertscape - an organisation dedicated to helping consumers find health professionals with extensive expertise in their specific area.

Epilepsy Society's medical director Professor Ley Sander has also been ranked as the world's leading expert on epilepsy. The rankings have been based on published peer-reviewed research over the last 10 years.

Professor Ley Sander said:  'We have a unique arrangement with the UCL Institute of Neurology and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery which ensures academic and clinical excellence, patient input and relevance of our medical research. We believe that research into epilepsy represents the best hope of finding a cure for epilepsy, and eventually preventing it altogether.'
