Neurology-Epilepsy Research Program Area

Epilepsy represents the most common neurological disorder in dogs, and is a significant concern for canine health. Epilepsy is of major concern to the AKC Canine Health Foundation and has prompted the establishment of a focused Epilepsy Research Program Area . with collaborative research groups who will work together to define the molecular basis of disease and develop new treatment or prevention strategies in epilepsy. Collaborative research groups are expected to involve pre-clinical and clinical research teams that will accelerate the discovery of underlying disease mechanisms and translate them into prevention strategies or disease-modifying therapies.
