In partnership with the American Epilepsy Society, Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy (PAME) desires to fund ideas that advance SUDEP Summit priorities using the AES Seed Grants mechanism. This grant program offers funds to enable established investigators to pursue new and innovative lines of research, collaborations, and/or research methods. A goal of the seed grant program is to help these investigators lay the groundwork for another grant that would help continue research. Funds can be used for planning purposes and pilot projects.

Specifically, PAME is interested in funding projects to advance clinical action priorities that will impact SUDEP prevention in the next 5 years. These priorities include:

  1. Use seizure detection devices in clinic: How can devices be leveraged for SUDEP prevention in the clinic? How can technology design better meet the identified needs of patients and caregivers?
  2. Leverage EHR to guide clinician actions: Where are opportunities to maximize electronic health records (EHR) to guide clinical actions around SUDEP risk mitigation?
  3. Build infrastructure for SUDEP Trials: How can Infrastructure for SUDEP clinical trials be established to hasten research at larger scale?

Seed Grant applications must be submitted by 5 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, October 5. To learn more about the AES Seed Grant program and read the full grant guidelines, please visit the AES website.
