Leading the way

Migraine Research initiative

The Association of Migraine Disorders is devoted to accelerating the most promising area of neuroscience research: migraine. AMD’s Migraine Research Initiative is led by AMD’s research committee consisting of brilliant, leading researchers who help identify knowledge gaps in migraine to influence future research projects. AMD provides funding for innovative research projects through its grant program. Finally, AMD strives to form an inter-institutional and multi-disciplinary network of migraine researchers and medical professionals through its resource hub and communication platform, the Migraine Science Collaborative.

Grant Programs

AMD has developed a comprehensive program that helps not only to fund specific research projects, but also to launch the careers of those willing to specialize in migraine research. We offer programs to introduce students into this area of neuroscience, through shadowing programs, travel grants, small introductory grants and then support more experienced researchers to explore new ideas with intermediate-sized grants, managed by the Migraine Research Foundation.

Migraine Science Collaborative

The Migraine Toolbox is a free, comprehensive “how-to” course in managing migraine. It covers the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. It includes downloadable practical tools – including questionnaires, medication guidelines for clinicians, a patient brochure and other resources. Those with migraine have many symptoms and therefore are seen by a wide range of medical professionals. This educational program will enable primary care physicians, nurses, pharmacists, gastroenterologists, and other non-headache specialists to care for these patients.
