Each full year, AES clinical and simple technology fellowship awardees are chosen for their novel approaches to epilepsy treatment and research improvements that can help result in new therapies and increase the knowledge of epilepsy. ‘Providing early-career awards is certainly central to the mission of AES,’ stated Elson Therefore, M.D., AES president. ‘As our Society functions to deepen understanding of the underlying mechanisms of epilepsy and stimulate innovations and new developments in epilepsy treatment, it is critical that we help another generation of epilepsy study leaders to start and establish their careers.’ ‘This is a strong group of awardees, each of whom provides new tips and advanced science to help increase our understanding of epilepsy,’ said Kimford Meador,M.D., chair of the AES Study & Training Council.
