BEMC Talk, 08.01.2020: Understanding Population-based Migraine through Genome-wide Genetics

Event for expert public only

Dan Chasman, Boston, USA


In spite of recent advances in treatment, migraine remains among the top ranked conditions in burden of disability globally, especially among women. The prospect of additional migraine treatments is limited by sparse knowledge of fundamental underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms. Recently, genome-wide genetic approaches to migraine in the population are revealing biological functions relevant to migraine, providing insights into its clinical correlates, and addressing the underlying heterogeneity intrinsic to migraine’s clinical presentation.

Berlin is home to many epidemiologists, but there aren’t many local platforms for us to connect, learn new methods, and discuss current issues in the field. The Berlin Epidemiological Methods Colloquium (BEMC) seeks to fill this gap via interactive monthly BEMC Talks and BEMC JClub.
