Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is committed to helping people better manage their epilepsy today; however, we also recognize the importance of providing hope for tomorrow. A great deal of exciting research is being done to enhance our understanding of epilepsy, develop new treatment options, and eventually find a cure. The Foundation is proud to support this research through the following:
Epilepsy Foundation’s National Research Initiative – A portion of our funding goes to support national epilepsy research through the national office of Epilepsy Foundation.
Participate in Epilepsy Research - Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan provides a list of local research studies and clinical trials in which people with epilepsy can participate.

Local Pilot Studies and Demonstration Projects
– Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan has been involved in several collaborative pilot studies of programs focused on such things as epilepsy self-management and access to specialty care. The CDC-funded "FOCUS on Epilepsy" program, the HRSA-funded "Pediatric Telemedicine Initiative," and the Medicaid-funded "Transition Program for Adolescents with Epilepsy" are examples of such projects.
