Biology of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

One of our lab’s current studies is the BIOJUME study, which aims to learn more about the genetics of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME). To do this we are recruiting 1000 people with JME over the next year and a half, including over 200 people from the UK.

The BIOJUME study is now up and running across the UK with 15 participants recruited over the last few months. The study is currently open at 16 NHS Trusts with another 6 Trusts opening the study over the next couple of months. We also have many other Trusts working on setting up the study and are open to interest from others.
