Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc - Reference Center for Refractory Epilepsy (CRE)

amouraux.jpg

The Reference Center for Refractory Epilepsy of the Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc is headed by Profs. Susana Ferrao Santos (neurologist and head coordinator of the epilepsy surgery program) and Prof. Riëm El Tahry (neurologist and head of the epileptology research laboratory at IoNS). The unit conducts basic and applied research on the treatment of refractory epilepsy including neurostimulation. The unit also provides access to intracerebral EEG for basic research.
