UW-Madison Epilepsy Research

Find a cure. Find it here. By underwriting fellowships and research projects at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we support cutting-edge work that will make a significant difference for people who live with epilepsy.

Lily's Fund Fellows

Research fellowships give young scientists or physicians an opportunity to explore a specific topic alongside experienced faculty members. Underwriting new fellowships at UW-Madison encourages young scientists to focus on epilepsy. Learn more and meet our fellows.

Grace Grants

Grace Grants fund specific research carried out by individuals, cross-disciplinary teams, or entire departments/labs. These grants are named in honor of another teenage girl who lives with epilepsy. Grace is tenacious, determined and creative, just like our scientists. Learn more about this research.

Special Research Grants

Sometimes, research opportunities arise that need immediate attention, and funding. From time to time, Lily’s Fund will allocate available resources to respond and fund this pressing research. Learn more about these unique projects.


In partnership with the UW Foundation, Lily’s Fund proudly supports UW-Madison teaching, research, and public service.
