KEY NOTE SPEAKERS
Uwe Reuter is a neurologist and partner in the headache program at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Upon completing his residency training in Berlin, he attended Harvard Medical School as a postdoctoral fellow. During his time in Boston he focused on basic research in primary headaches and migraine aura and published several peer reviewed publications in high impact journals.
Uwe Reuter has been the principal investigator in numerous clinical trials and research projects and is an advisor to several international pharmaceutical companies with an interest in headache. He has published more than 20 peer-reviewed papers on migraine and CGRP. He is a member of several national and international headache organizations and currently serves as a board member of the European Headache Federation (EHF).
Alexandra Sinclair graduated from the University of Birmingham School of Medicine in 2000. She completed her PhD in 2010 and subsequently worked as an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Neurology. Since 2013 she has worked as an NIHR funded Clinician Scientist & Neurology Consultant.
Dr Sinclair leads the Metabolic Neurology Group which seeks to establish and exploit the pathophysiological mechanisms underpinning the debilitating effects of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), develop therapeutic strategies, and generate real impact while improving patient care. The translational portfolio also encompasses a clinical trials program enabling forward (novel therapeutic molecules are under assessment in patients) and back translation (biomarker evaluation in the laboratory setting).
Dr Sinclair runs a multidisciplinary IIH and headache service at University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. She is also leading the first International IIH management guidelines and a priority setting partnership to establish the top 10 research priorities in IIH. She has published more than 30 peer-reviewed papers on IIH.
Jean SCHOENEN is founder and co-director of the Headache Research Unit in Liège. He got a certificate in Clinical Neurophysiology at Harvard Medical School (1976) after which he did a residency in Neuropathology at the same location.
He is an honorary Full Professor at the Liège University and founder & President of the Belgian Brain Council. In the past he was, amongst others, Professor of Functional Neuroanatomy and Clinical Professor of Neurology at the Liège University, Research Director of the National Fund for Scientific Research Belgium, President & Secretary General of the Belgian Neurological Society, President of the International Headache Society (IHS) and co-Founder & President of the European Headache Federation (EHF). He has a particular interest in the pathophysiology & therapy of migraine and headache and in clinical and animal research. He received several scientific prizes. He published more than 500 peer-reviewed articles.
