STRENGTHENING THE SFAX UNIVERSITY EXPERTISE FOR DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF EPILEPTIC ENCEPHALOPATHIES

Project description

Collaboration for improved epileptic encephalopathies diagnosis

Epileptic encephalopathies (EE) represent a group of severe epileptic diseases with early onset that lead to progressive cerebral dysfunction. New molecular technologies have made it easier to diagnose and start treatment earlier, for better patient outcomes. The EU-funded SEED project will help the Sfax University (SU) in Tunisia form a collaboration (twinning) with two internationally leading European institutions in EE diagnosis – Aix-Marseille University in France and University of Antwerp in Belgium – to build research excellence and innovation in EE clinical and genetic diagnostics. The aim is for SU to build sustainable research networks, close knowledge gaps and integrate into international networks via training and staff exchanges.
