., M.P.H., of the Emory University Department of Neurology. All represent Emory on the research collaboration's joint steering committee, which also includes three members from UCB representing corporate affairs, health economics and outcomes research, and medical affairs. The Rollins School of Public Health Biostatistics Consulting Center, which specializes in comprehensive statistical consultation and computational services, will support the investigators in their analysis.
"UCB values an open innovation model where we can partner with leading scientists and academic institutions to provide solutions for the patients we serve," said Patty Fritz , Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Operations, UCB, and joint steering committee member. "We are fortunate to be working with epilepsy experts at nearby Emory University on research that we hope will reveal new, evidence-based opportunities to raise the standard of care in epilepsy within a constantly evolving healthcare environment."

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder affecting approximately 65 million people worldwide and 2.3 million people in the U.S.—making it more common than autism, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease combined. Anyone can develop epilepsy; it occurs across all ages, races and genders and is defined as two or more unprovoked seizures. More than 1 million patiePage: 1 2 3 4 5 Related biology technology :1
