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:  For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit (R01) or (R21).
