Professor Sander named recipient of the American Epilepsy Society 2009 Clinical Science Award
15 October 2009
of the prestigious 2009 Epilepsy Research Recognition Award for Clinical Science conferred by the American Epilepsy Society (AES) The award recognizes Professor. Sander for pioneering research of epilepsy, its treatment and consequences in developing countries around the world.
The Epilepsy Research Recognition Award is part of the AES’s public recognition program to encourage and reward clinical and basic science investigators whose research contributes importantly in the effort to understand and conquer epilepsy. This year’s award for clinical science will be presented on December 7th during the Society’s 63rd Annual Meeting in Boston.
Dr. Sander’s research is focused on epilepsy outcomes in terms of remission, as well as premature death and its causes; other health complications associated with the disorder; genetic aspects of epilepsy, particularly as it relates to drug effects in individuals; and the management of epilepsy in resource-poor settings. His current work includes a large study of the cognitive impact of phenobarbital on learning and memory in young people in rural China, research on familial clusters of epilepsy in Bulgaria, and other projects in Brazil, India, Kenya, and the Republic of Georgia.
Professor Sander holds the UCL Established Chair of Epilepsy, funded by the National Society For Epilepsy.
