The Migraine Research Foundation (MRF) and the Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) announce the opening of a joint Request for Proposals for migraine research grants. The application deadline is at the end of July each year.
MRF is committed to discovering the causes, improving the treatments, and finding a cure, and AMD stimulates increased research in the area of migraine disorders.
We seek projects that will help sufferers by advancing our ability to understand and treat migraine. As a result, we offer seed-money grants for projects that are important, achievable, and innovative that will ultimately lead to better treatment and quality of life for sufferers of migraine and migraine disorders.
While we welcome all proposals relevant to basic or clinical migraine research, we are particularly interested in translational projects and those related to migraine variants, the relationship between concussions and migraines, post-traumatic headaches and migraine, hormonal effects on the nervous system, effects of nutrition on migraine, and other migraine variants, such as vestibular migraine and sinus migraine. Projects should take an original approach to the subject and have the potential to move the field forward in a significant way.
Please be advised that due to the large number of grant requests we receive, applications must follow the required format and conform to the guidelines to be considered.
Visit the grant page at the Migraine Research Foundation's website to see details and the application.
