Our mission

We are leading a movement to improve the quality of life of people living with epilepsy—to reduce anxiety and improve treatment outcomes with more personalized care.

We are driven to deliver “Neureka®!” moments to as many people as possible: that moment when patients are able to focus on living their best life, without being defined by their condition. 

The Neureka® platform offers a holistic system of support to help patients, caregivers, and clinicians work together to better manage epilepsy.  

Meet the Neureka® leadership team

We’re a multidisciplinary team of neuroscientists, data analysts, technology entrepreneurs, patient advocates, and more—with deep expertise in hands-on application within our respective fields.

We're inspired to help improve the quality of life of people living with epilepsy. Working together, there are brighter days ahead!
