8 March annually, is International Women's Day, celebrating women's achievements around the world. Here we celebrate just a few of the women who are making a difference in the field of epilepsy.
At the moment we can only recruit people for our research who are under the care of UCLH. However, if you would like to be considered for future research projects or for treatment at our Chalfont Centre which provides specialist care for people with difficult-to-treat epilepsy, you can ask your GP or neurologist to refer you to us as a patient.

A unique collaboration between UK charity Epilepsy Society, and Belgian biopharmaceutical company, UCB, could bring life-changing treatments to people with epilepsy whose seizures do not respond to current treatments.
An international team of researchers, led by doctors from Epilepsy Society, used exome sequencing to unlock the genetic cause of DOORS syndrome. The rare, autosomal recessive genetic condition is characterised by deafness, onychodystrophy, osteodystrophy, intellectual disability and seizures.
Bioinformatics uses computer programming to analyse or interpret the huge amount of data a sequenced genome produces. This will help us to understand the genetic architecture of the epilepsies and accelerate precision treatment for epilepsy.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and painless technique, using a powerful magnetic field, similar to that used in an MRI scanner.
