03.10.2020 - 09.10.2020 18th Biennial Migraine Trust International Symposium (MTIS)

The Migraine Trust International Symposium (MTIS), the world’s longest-established headache conference, aims to support academic progress and discourse in the migraine field. MTIS first started organizing meetings in London in 1966 as one of the first European specialist forums. Run by a global patient-driven organization, The Migraine Trust, and held every other year in alternation with the International Headache Congress (IHC), MTIS is a unique and exciting meeting in the field for top migraine specialists.

In recent years, MTIS has been attended by approximately 800 delegates from around the world, including clinicians, researchers, and research fellows who are invited to a wide variety of educational programs. Neurologybytes covered the last meeting in 2018, at which Dr. Gisela Terwindt (Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands) discussed migraine in women, Dr. Richard Lipton (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY, USA) spoke on migraine comorbidities, Dr. Messoud Ashina (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) elaborated on human models of migraine, and Dr. Laura Schulte (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany) and Prof. Shun-Jiun Wang (Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taiwan) shared insights into signatures of headache via neuroimaging.

For the first time this year, MTIS is going virtual. The Migraine Trust Virtual Symposium 2020 agenda will include teaching courses, plenary sessions, and several industry and scientific symposia. Particularly, the MacDonald Critchley lecture awarded to Prof. Shuu-Jiun Wang (Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taiwan) and the public Migraine Trust lecture awarded to Prof. David Dodick (Mayo Clinic, USA) should be of great interest to migraine professionals.
