The first General Assembly meeting within the EPISTOP project took place on November 15-16, 2014 in Paris, France. The meeting was moderated by Rima Nabbout. She is a neuro-paediatrician at the Paris Hôpital Necker. Representatives of each Partner of EPISTOP project and members of the Scientific Advisory Board attended the meeting.

During this event Partners of the different work packages presented their progress. It was very pleasant to see that also new collaborations between Partners were developed to improve the project implementation.

Successful discussions were held about various aspects of the project: recruitment of patients, experimental procedures and protocols, scientific research, administration and dissemination. The debates went on long after the official end of the meeting.

Currently 13 patients have been enrolled in the EPISTOP project. We hope to include more patients in the study soon.
