We funded the first study to investigate the after-effects and social consequences of encephalitis.

We funded and supported six PhD studies.

We funded eight seed projects.

We were involved in the first randomised control trial (RCT) in herpes simplex virus encephalitis (HSVE) in more than 40 years (DexEnceph study).

We supported the ENCEPHUK study which looked into the outcomes and clinical predictors of encephalitis.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we were involved in some of the biggest international studies on COVID-19: COVID-CNS and COVID NeuroGlobal.

We established the annual go-to Encephalitis Conferences (406 participants from 55 countries in 2022).

We organised three masterclass webinars.

We awarded 10 bursaries to professionals from LMIC to attend the Encephalitis Conference in the UK and three bursaries to professionals from the UK to further their professional development abroad.

We awarded the 10th Anniversary Research Prize.

We supported the patient participation involvement (PPI) in more than 10 research studies.

We helped find participants for more than 100 research projects.
