Commission on Genetics

About Us

The aims of the Commission on the Genetics of Epilepsy are to:

  • Improve genetic literacy of the ILAE members;
  • Develop information sources regarding genetics of epilepsy for the public, taking into account regional sensitivities, cultural factors and possible stigmatization related to epilepsy and genetics; and 
  • Assist in coordination of international efforts to understand the basis of complex epilepsies that will require large multinational cohorts.
