The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications for research on the neurobiology of migraine. This announcement is made together with 3 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
Migraine headaches affect a large percentage (20 percent) of the population, account for most pain-related emergency room visits, and may persist as a chronic condition that extends throughout the lifespan. Despite the prevalence of migraine and a long history of relevant research, many questions remain.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Linda Porter, Program Director, Neurogenetics Cluster, NINDS, telephone: 301-496-9964; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
