Dr Joseph Lloyd awarded PhD for his migraine research

Joseph investigated the mechanisms of action of three different neuromodulation techniques

Congratulations to Dr Joseph Lloyd on being awarded a PhD for his migraine research.

Joseph was granted a The Migraine Trust PhD Studentship in 2016 which he completed this month.

His research has furthered the understanding of what happens in the brain that leads to migraine attacks, and neuromodulation as a migraine treatment.

In his thesis, supervised by Dr Anna Andreou at King’s College London, Joseph investigated the mechanisms of action of three different neuromodulation techniques – transcranial magnetic stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, and occipital nerve stimulation.

He has written about this research and his findings for our blog.

This research was only possible because of the donations from supporters and hard work of people who fundraise for us. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.
