About Epilepsy
When a person has two or more unprovoked seizures, they have epilepsy, which affects nearly three million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide.  This year, another 200,000 people in our country will be diagnosed with epilepsy.  Despite all available treatments, 30 to 40 percent of all people with epilepsy continue to experience uncontrolled seizures while many more experience less than optimal seizure control.   

About the AED XII Conference and the Second Annual Epilepsy Shark Tank Event
The Antiepileptic Drug and Device Trials (AED) XII Conference is being held May 15-17, 2013, at the Turnberry Isle Miami Hotel, Aventura, FL. The three-day conference will focus on issues related to antiepileptic drug development from preclinical discoveries through clinical evaluations with the final day devoted to showcasing the most promising epilepsy therapies in development.  The 2013 conference will also include the second annual Epilepsy Therapy Project Shark Tank Event which awards a grant to the best new idea in epilepsy treatment and care.  The "Shark Tank" finalists will present their concepts and product candidates at the conference; the winning entry will be selected by live voting by an expert panel of judges and audience members representing industry, patient advocacy, investment, research and medical communities.  The project deemed most innovative will be announced at the conclusion of the conference, and the winner will receive a $100,000 grant to help accelerate the idea from concept to people with epilepsy.
