We express our deep gratitude to participating families and referring physicians.  

Launching of The RIKEE Project, including the patient database and website, was funded (2013-2014) by a Research Infrastructure Program Grant supported jointly by the American Epilepsy Society and the Epilepsy Foundation.  Additional and ongoing funding has been provided by Baylor College of Medicine, and grants from the Jack Pribaz Foundation, the KCNQ2 Cure Alliance, the Miles Family Fund, family donations, and Xenon Pharmaceuticals.   We are very grateful for this essential support. The funders have not previewed or approved and are not responsible for the content of this site.
