Funding for Established Investigators

AES offers two funding mechanisms to help empower established investigators to innovate and accelerate research to understand and cure epilepsy and its consequences. Both funding mechanisms are available to basic, translational, and clinical research for epilepsy, seizures, and related disorders. Proposals are reviewed and selected by the Research & Training Council of AES, led by basic and clinical co-chairs. 

AES Research & Training Workshop Grants support scientific conferences and workshops that address timely and important topics in epilepsy research.

AES Seed Grants offer “seed” funds to help enable established investigators to pursue new and innovative directions in their laboratory. An established investigator is defined as having at least an associate professor or equivalent level appointment with a history of successful NIH/NSF/VA funding.
