CURE’s Susan Axelrod talks about her visit to the Waisman Center

Nov. 22, 2010

Susan Axelrod is Chair and founding member of Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE). In 1998, Axelrod and two other mothers, frustrated with their inability to protect their children from the devastation of uncontrollable seizures and the side effects of medications, joined forces to spearhead the search for a cure for epilepsy.

Susan recently visited UW-Madison and the Waisman Center to meet with various researchers and her visit included Waisman Center Director Marsha Seltzer, PhD and Waisman Center researcher Chris Ikonomidou, MD, PhD.
