Our group at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute has been researching complex health conditions and medications for over thirty years. In collaboration with other researchers, our Twin and Family Studies have shown a person’s risk of epilepsy has a hereditary component – it is more common in those who have an affected family member.
Unfortunately, some families don’t even know they have an affected member and can be left at risk of being inadequately treated. Furthermore, some epileptic medications work for some patients but not others, an effect that could have a strong genetic basis.
This study seeks to better understand the specific genes involved in Epilepsy, with the ultimate aim of improving diagnosis and individualised treatment.
