BC Epilepsy Society

Founded in 1959 by pediatric neurologist Dr. Norman Auckland, the BC Epilepsy Society is dedicated to serving British Columbians living with epilepsy, and their families.

Since 2006, the BC Epilepsy Society has partnered with MSFHR to jointly fund four BC-based epilepsy researchers ranging from the PhD to post-doctoral levels. The benefits of this partnership are highlighted in this video profile of 2011 MSFHR/BC Epilepsy Society Research Trainee Dr. Stuart Cain.

Previous research grants funded by the BC Epilepsy Society have supported both population health research and basic science. The society is open to all types of research that would improve the lives of the 40,000 British Columbians living with a seizure disorder.
