Research and Education in Epilepsy Fund (REEF)
The Research and Education in Epilepsy Fund was established in 2007 to support innovations in epilepsy in South Carolina as well as the coastal regions of North Carolina and Georgia.
Money that is raised by REEF is used for initiation of new, creative epilepsy research. Creative new research projects often have trouble getting started, due to a lack of funding. Larger, more established, and conventional research is typically supported by large government research grants. However, new ideas usually need "pilot studies" to show promise, before major funding can be pursued. REEF provides support for such new ideas, enabling them to get off the ground, and to see if the projects have promise.
Part of the money raised by REEF is also used for education of patients, caregivers, and young healthcare professionals.
