There is no condition of such magnitude - yet so shrouded in myth, misinformation, and mistreatment - as migraine.

"Millions of families like mine live with the debilitating pain of migraine on a daily basis, but migraine research has lacked for funding and support for far too long. By helping research scientists discover the root causes of migraine and determine how to treat them, the Migraine Research Foundation hopes that everyone who suffers from migraine will eventually have an effective treatment that they can count on to allow them to live a healthy, happy and productive life."
– Stephen Semlitz, co-founder and Chairman of the Board

The Migraine Research Foundation was founded in 2006 as the only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to funding migraine research in the United States.

Assisting MRF is a distinguished Medical Advisory Board that includes leading neurologists and scientists from across the country.

In just four years, MRF has awarded twenty three research grants.
