My Seizure Gauge Initiative
My Seizure Gauge Initiative
Bringing Big Data to Personalized Seizure Risk Assessment
The Epilepsy Innovation Institute (Ei2) is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals for the My Seizure Gauge initiative pairing longitudinal intracranial EEG recordings with a host of peripheral measurements (such as biosensors, digital markers, passive measurements, etc.) to identify new relationships between brain state and non-invasive or minimally invasive read-outs. A successful team will be composed of clinicians who can recruit participants with existing intracranial devices implanted , data scientists and device interoperability experts who can ensure successful data integration, and researchers who can propose different parameters to measure and analyze. Ei2 plans to fund at least $3 million to a team over a three-year period. Recognizing that not all organization(s)/individual(s) interested in participating have existing partnerships that would ensure a successful full grant application,
all interested parties are encouraged to submit an LOI by December 22nd addressing which assets the individual(s)/organization(s) could contribute to the project.
Those with a ccepted LOIs will be invited to a February 21 st workshop in San
Francisco, California where there will be opportunities to find partners prior to the
full grant application and have discussions on key decision criteria for a successful grant. Note that pre-formed teams may also submit an LOI, and if selected, attend the workshop. Please see Letter of Intent section under Applicant Instructions for more details. Full grant applications will be due on May 11th, 2018. Our overall goal is to collect prospective data from a cohort of individuals who have had intracranial EEG
devices implanted. The ideal application will outline a recruitment process for individuals with ambulatory intracranial EEG recordings, propose rigorous methodology to measure a myriad of additional factors, and then mine the data for new clues about what happens in the body in the days, hours and minutes before a seizure. Insights from this study can then be used to design less-invasive approaches to a future seizure gauge device for forecasting seizures.
