AMD is actively developing cooperative relationships with multiple migraine nonprofit organizations in the belief that nonprofits will be more powerful, cost effective and successful in collaboration with others.
About Brown Institute for Brain Science (BIBS)
The BIBS brings together more than 100 faculty members spanning life and physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, humanities and medicine. BIBS fosters interdisciplinary research around three themes; fundamental discovery, brain health and neurotechnology.
In 2014, the Association of Migraine Disorders sponsored a $100,000 multi-investigator pilot grant to support a migraine research project at Brown University. The project aligns with AMD’s overarching goal to further state-of-the-art research into the symptoms of migraine disease. This grant was the first step in a long term partnership with researchers at Brown.
AMD has worked closely with the team of Drs. Diane Lipscombe, Julie Kauer, Carl Saab, Chris Moore and Julie Roth to develop both a new animal model for testing migraine interventions and a post-doctoral position devoted to migraine research. There has been a recent seminar on migraine disorders and a student shadowing program.
