Epilepsy will impact 1 in 26 people throughout their lifetime. While epilepsy is common, the reasons, treatments, outcomes and associated complications vary widely between individuals.

We do our best work when we work together

The Pediatric Epilepsy Research Consortium (PERC) is a national collaboration of more than 75 pediatric epilepsy programs and over 350 pediatric epileptologists, pediatric neurosurgeons, pediatric neuropsychologists, and other pediatric epilepsy researchers. Founded in 2010 by physicians and scientists determined to find better treatments for their patients, PERC has grown to become the leader in pediatric epilepsy research by providing a network and infrastructure to facilitate collegial, collaborative, practice-changing research. Through thirteen special interest groups, PERC works to improve the care of every child with epilepsy. We are particularly committed to fostering development of future pediatric epileptologists by providing opportunities for junior investigators to join ongoing efforts and develop research skills.
