Migraine Science Collaborative




The Migraine Science Collaborative is an online community for researchers with a goal of improving the success of migraine research projects by providing education and communication tools.

Migraine research includes the study of genetics, neuroimaging, pain pathways, hormones, ion channelopathies, neuromodulators, neuroinflammation and more. Yet, there are few places that allow for collaboration among scientists in all of these areas, that’s where the Migraine Science Collaborative comes in.

This program aims to facilitate communication, collaboration and careers in migraine research.  It will serve to connect members of the community, share a library of information including sources of grants, and grow to fit the needs of members.

Understanding this syndrome will help pain, post-traumatic headache and dizziness syndromes and provide relief for the millions of people who are disabled by their headaches.

The Need for Translational and Basic Research in Migraine
McCormick Place Convention Center

AMD will build on last year’s success of migraine social through a satellite symposium that will focus on the importance of basic, preclinical and translational research in migraine. Currently, migraine research is underappreciated and there are not enough basic scientists choosing to study migraine disease due to the complex nature of the disease. AMD is in the process of building a new research coalition of basic and clinical researchers as part of its mission to expand the understanding of migraine and its true scope by supporting research, education, and awareness. This symposium will further support AMD’s ongoing efforts by bringing awareness of migraine disease to SfN attendees. The meeting format will include a mix of presentations and a panel discussion with up to five speakers with topics ranging from the importance of basic research and preclinical models in migraine.
