DOD- Epilepsy Research Program – Application

Well-being, Health and Biomedical Discovery


Academic Unit: inquire with unit

Memorial Deadline: Thursday 13th, June 2024

External Deadline: Thursday 20th, June 2024


The ERP was initiated in 2015 to support longitudinal epidemiological research to better understand the incidence of post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to improve patient care and outcomes. The ERP is committed to funding research projects that (1) investigate topics related to epileptogenesis for the identification of mechanisms by which brain injury produces epilepsy, (2) study the prevention of PTE and concomitant comorbidities, and (3) develop innovative research tools or biomarkers to better detect, diagnose, or predict the development of PTE. To this end, the ERP utilizes Focus Areas that applications should address to drive investment into specific program priority areas.

The anticipated FY23 ERP Focus Areas are as follows:

  • – Markers and Mechanisms
    – Epidemiology
    – Longitudinal Studies
    – Innovative Research
