Migraine Trust International Symposium

We host an international conference every two years to bring leading researchers together to share new discoveries

As part of our commitment to advancing migraine research, we have been organising gatherings of scientists since 1966 when the first of a continuous series of biennial London symposia was held. These research meetings became international symposia in 1976 and for many years were the only European specialist forum at which research findings could be presented and discussed.

The symposium was delivered virtually in 2020 due to the global pandemic. The event for the public took place at the end of the symposium, on Sunday, 11 October 2020. It featured four talks from migraine specialists: Professor Allan Purdy on ‘An overview of migraine aura’, Dr Louise Rusk on ‘How to take control of your migraine’, Dr Shazia Afridi on ‘Migraine and female hormones’, and Professor David Dodick on ‘New therapies: What can patients expect?’.

The next Migraine Trust International Symposium (MTIS) will take place from 8-11 September 2022.
