23 & 24 Nov 2021 | Workshop

"Neuropathology of epilepsy:
from experimental models to human disease tissue"

In the 1st Workshop organized by Professor Eleonora Aronica and Professor Erwin van Vliet (Amsterdam Medical Centre) we could not gather in person in Amsterdam, but we found a good alternative:

  • Used a novel digital pathology platform to learn interactively about histological hallmarks and seizures, epileptogenesis and its consequences.

Thanks to thank all the speakers and participants.
In 2022, there will be more actions. Stay tuned!

27-Sep-2021 / 01-Oct-2021 | Summer School at Costa da Caparica, Portugal

"Trends and challenges in epilepsy research"

This Summer School brought together outstanding scientists, clinical experts and early stage researchers to debate the state of art and current challenges in epilepsy(ies) treatment and research.

Held as an hybrid event, the in-person event took place in Portugal, surrounded by the beautiful Autumn sun, waves and beaches of Costa da Caparica. This allowed us to discuss science and build bridges to boost research in epilepsies in an outstanding and relaxing environment.

A special acknowledgement to all the participants and, particularly, to our Speakers.

Rett Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder.

At EpiEpiNet, one of our focus is to understand how neuronal development and function is impaired in Rett Syndrome.
In the context of the Rare Disease Month, we share with you some of the research studies where EpiEpiNet researchers participated!
Check it in: For Society > Rare Diseases.

Our Mission:

"Promote Collaborative multidisciplinary & translational research in epilepsy"

"Promote public awareness on epilepsy caregiving &
research to patient communication"

Who are we?

4 European Research Institutions came together to build EpiEpiNet:
