CURE - Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy It's Time We Found a CURE CURE Epilepsy Research

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Two provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act threatened to affect important medical research funded by the Department of Defense (DOD). Thanks to the efforts of Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and the voices of advocates like CURE through the Research, Not Red Tape initiative, an amendment passed in the Senate in early June to protect this funding so it can continue to support breakthrough research for active service members, military families, and veterans.

This is especially important as it applies to the new, multidisciplinary, team science initiative CURE is developing in collaboration with the DOD to advance the understanding of epilepsy as a result of traumatic brain injuries, the signature wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
