Research

The Barrow leadership team, neurologists and dedicated supporters want to establish a world-class clinical and basic research center for headache and migraine that includes clinical programs, clinical trials, research and patient support. A team of neurologists and scientists, led by Kerry Knievel, DO, is in the preliminary stages of collecting data that is crucial in developing the future tests, and research necessary to grow and develop a world-class center for cutting edge clinical care and research.

Currently, Dr. Knievel and her team of headache specialists are conducting five studies – three of which study migraine and two that study CSF leak/ intracranial hypotension. The plan is to expand both the number and scope of clinical trials, as well as engage in basic translational research to understand the genetic, environmental or inflammatory triggers that might cause migraine and other headaches.
