Migraine awareness week

De eerste week van september is de internationale migraine awareness week, een week die in het teken staat van meer aandacht voor migraine. 🧠 In het kader van deze week zullen we vanuit het LUMC hier meer aandacht voor vragen.

At the LUMC we perform a wide variety of scientific research in the field of migraine. The departments of Neurology, Human Genetics and Radiology are among others involved. The LUMC has held a leading position in this research area for many years. We work closely with other academic hospitals, such as Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, and various international research groups.

Why is Migraine Research Necessary?

Migraine significantly reduces quality of life and comes at great costs for society. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists migraine as number two in the list of most burdensome diseases. People can become disabled by a migraine attack, not work or go to school, or participate in social life with family and friends. In addition, it is known that a number of migraine patients also have other complaints or symptoms that are related to the brain disorder.
