2023 Research Network Month: Dr. Amaia Muñoz-Lopetegi ~ 2021 AEA Community Seed Grant Recipient ~ Research Update

May 15, 2023

Dr. Amaia Muñoz-Lopetegi received an AEA Community Seed Grant in 2021. Today, in honor of Research Network Month, she provides an update on her research with anti-LGI1 encephalitis: diagnostic tests and prognostic implications.

The AEA Community Seed Grant program is funded by donations from the AEA Support Network community & friends. Awarded applications must meet all Required Components and most importantly demonstrate a direct impact on people diagnosed with AE and their families.

Research funding for rare disease is scare. The funding you contribute allows the Alliance Medical Advisory Board to review, support and approve research projects that allows investigators to obtain sufficient data to convince larger funding agencies to support research into causes and treatment of AE.

Thank you to the AEA community for planting the seed and allowing Dr. Amaia Muñoz-Lopetegi to continue developing her research into anti-LGI1 encephalitis.
