Epilepsy division announces inaugural research update evening

The UF Department of Neurology and the Epilepsy Division are delighted to announce the inaugural Wilder Center for Epilepsy Research update evening on Thursday, March 21, 2019. The event will be held at the McKnight Brain Institute, 6-9 pm.

Please mark your calendars to save the date!

The Wilder update evening is the first of an annual event series that encourages epilepsy-interested clinicians and neuroscientists at UF to network, and for our annual visiting professor to get to know the UF epilepsy community.

This year, we have the honor of hosting Dr. Patrick Chauvel (Marseilles, France/Cleveland Clinic) as Wilder Visiting Professor.

The program includes a research blitz by UF investigators and a lecture by Dr. Chauvel, and all attendees are invited to a wine reception and buffet dinner afterwards.

We hope to see you on Thursday March 21!
