LGS Research Meeting of the Minds: Finding Disease-Modifying
Therapies for LGS

The LGS Foundation is organizing the first-ever Meeting of the Minds professional conference to find disease-modifying therapies and the cures for LGS.

This two-day Virtual Conference will bring together patients, families, doctors, researchers, industry partners, and advocacy organizations to discuss progress to date in understanding LGS and how we can find targeted treatments and cures for this horrible early life epilepsy. Meeting presentations will be live-streamed and may be attended by anyone. In order to maximize discussion and reach our objectives, meeting discussion groups will be kept small and will be by invitation only. 

This meeting will guide the LGS Foundation's future research funding strategy as part of our new Finding the Cures, Together.

Our goals are ambitious, our aim high, but the future of cures for LGS starts here!


Join us as we begin this incredible journey toward a cure!
