Free public talk on epilepsy research and progress towards better treatment

The public is invited to hear a talk by Dr Phil Robinson of the Childrens Medical Research Institute (CMRI) about current research. His lab has made a discovery that opens the path to a truly new treatment for epilepsy.

Dr Robinson has found a new opening into the control of brain excitability, a major factor in epileptic seizures.

Many of todays treatments for epilepsy target similar aspects of the brain and some cause side effects such as slowed thought processes and a general fuzziness. Dr Robinsons research holds enormous potential for future improved treatment of epilepsy.

Join Dr Robinson for an evening lecture about the research behind this new discovery and how it may one day be used to development treatments for epilepsy, schizophrenia and mood disorders.

There is also an opportunity to take a back-stage look into the CMRIs state-of-the-art research facilities and hear from a world-leading scientist. Evening refreshments will be provided to sustain you through the lecture and tour program.

This program is part of National Science Week, an initiative of the Australian Government.
