Research and Education

ResearchRhode Island Hospital is the principal teaching hospital of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, where our physicians are faculty members. Many ongoing collaborative and multidisciplinary clinical research efforts concerning epilepsy are being conducted by our physicians and Alpert Medical School.

With our ongoing involvement in education and research, we seek to discern the mysteries of this complicated condition and free as many patients as possible of their debilitating seizures. We may offer patients the opportunity to participate in clinical research trials. The patient's physician will discuss participation in a trial if the patient is a potential candidate.
