NINDS encourages grant applications for research on the neurobiology of migraine. This announcement is made together with 4 other NIH components and is supported by 2 grant mechanisms: R01 and R21.

Migraine headaches affect a large percentage of the population, account for most pain-related emergency room visits, and may persist as a chronic condition that extends throughout life. Despite the prevalence of migraine and a long history of relevant research, many questions remain regarding the pathophysiology and the many factors that influence this complex disorder.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Linda Porter, program director, Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience, NINDS, at 301-496-9964 or porterl@ninds.nih.gov.
