The Pediatric Epilepsy Research Consortium (PERC) is a national collaboration of more than 40 pediatric epilepsy programs. We aim to provide a network and infrastructure to facilitate collegial, collaborative, practice-changing research to improve the care of children with epilepsy. We are particularly committed to providing opportunities for junior investigators to join ongoing efforts and develop research skills.
