One of the biggest hurdles to effective Migraine management is the lack of research funding. The Migraine Research Foundation wants to change that. To that end, they raise and distribute funds for Migraine research. The expenses of running the MRF are underwritten, so very dollar donated to the MRF goes into research.
The MRF has just issued a new request for proposals (RFP) for research grants. In infomration just released, the MRF states:
The Migraine Research Foundation is committed to furthering the understanding of the causes and mechanisms of migraine, helping to develop improvements in treatment, and finding the cure. We believe that migraine research is very important and under-funded. As a result, MRF is actively seeking to provide seed money grants for projects that are important, achievable, and innovative that will ultimately lead to better treatment and quality of life for migraine sufferers.
While MRF welcomes all proposals relevant to migraine research, this year we are particularly interested in projects related to three areas: (1) pediatric/adolescent migraine that will expand knowledge of epidemiology, mechanisms, genetics, and comorbidities of pediatric headaches, (2) migraine in women, and (3) chronic migraine.
