Download audio (MP3)

Nearly 3 million Americans have epilepsy. It's as common as breast cancer, and can be as dangerous. But those with the disease say research is underfunded and epilepsy doesn't get the attention it deserves. We talk with participants in a major conference in San Francisco on emerging treatments for epilepsy.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Daniel Lowenstein, director of the Epilepsy Center and professor and vice chairman in the Department of Neurology at UCSF
  • Lisa Lindahl, member of the Business Advisory Board of the Epilepsy Therapy Project and a lifelong sufferer of epilepsy
  • Susan Axelrod, co-founder and chair of Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy and mother of a daughter with severe epilepsy
  • Warren Lammert, chairman and co-founder of the Epilepsy Therapy Project
