Congratulations to Gashirai Mbizvo (Clinical Research Fellow, Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre) who was awarded the 'Best Overall Presentation' prize at the Scottish Association of Neurological Sciences (SANS) Annual Meeting in November 2017.

SANS is an umbrella organisation to support neurology-related clinicians in Scotland and includes membership from neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists and clinical neurophysiologists. To win this award, Gashirai presented his research project, The Scottish Epilepsy Deaths Study (SEDS), in open competition against 17 other neurology research projects that were presented at the meeting. SEDS is a national cohort and case-control study linking various administrative healthcare datasets in Scotland in order to identify rate, causes, and risk factors for epilepsy-related mortality.
