MP Cheryl Gillan visits Epilepsy Society
During her visit the MP will meet Epilepsy Society's head of genetics research, Professor Sanjay Sisodiya. The work of the genetics team was highlighted by Mrs Gillan in a parliamentary debate about epilepsy earlier this year.
Speaking at the debate Mrs Gillan said: 'Epilepsy Society's researchers have been central to new scientific discoveries , in particular research that demonstrates the breadth of genetic influences in epilepsy.'
Mrs Gillan will tour the charity's new research facilities and hear from Angela Geer, Epilepsy Society's chief executive, about the Society's ambitious new vision to leverage its medical research strength to revolutionise how epilepsy is diagnosed and treated.
