Congratulations to the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, on the opening of a new cluster headache centre

The Centre for Cluster Headache (CCH) was opened on 3 February 2023.

The centre is a collaboration between researchers and clinicians from the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institutet and financed by the Mellby Gård Foundation.

The centre will hold a Biobank of blood, skin biopsies, patient questionnaires, and sleep data and focus on research into cluster headache including genetics, circadian rhythm, epidemiology, sex differences, trigger factors, pain mechanisms, inflammation, treatment response and neuronal function.

Huge congratulations from IHS for all the researchers and clinicians who have dedicated their time to setting up the centre.
