HERO Website

Become a HERO. Take part in life-changing research. 

The purpose of the HERO website is to make it easier for people to find and enroll in clinical studies and advance epilepsy research. The epilepsy community desperately needs new therapies and approaches for patients with resistant or refractory seizures. We need to know more about the basic mechanisms and causes of epilepsy so that we can better match therapies to patients, and someday soon find targets for cures. But none of these giant steps forward will be possible without robust, careful research that safeguards the health of study participants while uncovering important new findings.
