It's time to register! 

We're excited to have AES in Tennessee this year and hope to see y'all there in a few short months.   
We wanted to take the opportunity of having so many of you nearby to host a pre-conference, 2-day in-person event at St. Jude focused on genetics and the promise of precision medicine in pediatric epilepsies. Our goal is to have an event where we can hear what people are working on, share the vision and ongoing work at St. Jude in the Pediatric Translational Neurosciences Initiative, and exchange ideas for accelerating research toward implementing precision therapy moving forward. We plan for this to be a meaningful meeting with representation from basic science and translational researchers, clinicians and clinician scientists, advocacy and patient perspectives, industry, and more.

Please register to reserve your spot, space will be limited to the capacity of our event space. 

Tuesday, November 29 (8 am-6 pm) and   
Wednesday, November 30 (8 am-1 pm)
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
