The LGS Foundation Research Award provides funding for young and established investigators, physician residents, and clinicians who seek to advance our understanding of Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS).
Grants may be one year or two years and are intended to support research projects that answer questions
related to the underlying biology, clinical aspects, therapies, and/or causes of LGS.
