What is AE Alliance?

The Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance was started by families and patients affected by autoimmune encephalitis. Founded in 2012 the AE Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Durham North Carolina.

The Autoimmune Encephalitis (AE) Alliance strives to educate physicians in evidence-based best practices for the diagnosis and treatment of AE. Successful patient care requires a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach.

The AE Alliance endeavors to establish a supportive community of patients, families and caregivers, so that no one faces autoimmune encephalitis alone.

The AE Alliance works to facilitate scientific research into the causes of AE and its treatment, with confidence that a cure will be found.
