Description: Almost 3 million Americans have epilepsy. Most do not have complete seizure control, or experience seizure control at the cost of debilitating side effects from medications. This year, another 200,000 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy and an estimated 25,000 to 50,000 will die from seizures and related causes.

In March 2007, leading scientists, health care providers, and leaders of voluntary health organizations will come together to discuss potential targets and technologies for new therapies, with the goal of moving the field toward a cure. Session topics will include:

- Genetics
- Epileptogenesis
- Co-morbidities
- Imaging/technology

This conference is being sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in collaboration with AES, CDCP, CURE, EF, FACES, ILAE, Milken Foundation, PACE, NAEC and TSA.
