Medicine Tomorrow for the Yale Epilepsy Group

The Yale Epilepsy Group’s unique multidisciplinary approach transcends traditional research and clinical care models for patients suffering from epilepsy, one of the most prevalent neurological diseases. Collaborations between research groups are a hallmark of Yale School of Medicine, where extraordinary leaps are being made in translational medicine, and bring us closer to new generations of therapies and ultimately the promise of eradicating epilepsy and other neurological disorders. 

At no point in history has medical research made advances at the current breathtaking pace.  The School of Medicine welcomes partnership through private funding for our projects. The gift opportunities listed below will help to secure the future of our programs, and endowments can be named for the donor or in tribute to another individual. Gifts of every size are meaningful and important to our ability to provide the best care of all of our patients.
