UCSF heads $25M NIH study to find genetic roots of epilepsy

The University of California, San Francisco, is leading a $25 million National Institutes of Health-funded study to seek the genetic roots of epilepsy, UCSF said Monday.
UCSF and its research partners will use the NIH funding over the next five years to sequence DNA from 4,000 people with epilepsy -- one of the world’s most common neurological diseases -- with UCSF getting more than $4 million
