11/22/2021

RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Marinus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNS), a pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of innovative therapeutics to treat rare seizure disorders, today announced that nine abstracts highlighting clinical trial and research data have been accepted for poster presentation at the American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting being held in Chicago, Illinois, from December 3 through 7, 2021.

AES is the premier event for epilepsy professionals in academia, clinical practice, industry and patient advocacy. The Annual Meeting is also available virtually through AES 2021 Digital Select.
