Dr Nazia Karsan
Neurology SpR, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust Headache Postdoctoral Clinical Research Fellow, King’s College London, UK
Dr Karsan will be talking about the non-pain aspects of migraine.
Nazia is a final year Neurology SpR in London and Surrey and also works as a Headache Clinical Research Fellow at King’s College London in the Headache Group, under Professor Peter Goadsby.
Her research and clinical interests lie in the primary headache disorders, in particular, the non-painful parts of the migraine attack and increasing understanding of these through experimental research and functional neuroimaging. Her PhD research was funded by an Association of British Neurologists and Guarantors of Brain Clinical Research Training Fellowship and examined the premonitory phase of migraine, in particular, using pharmacological provocation and functional MR methods. She has published in this area, as well as in other areas related to the neurobiology of headache in general. She is currently supported by a short-term project award from the Migraine Trust and continues to pursue clinical research in these areas of interest. She has previously been awarded the AAN Headache Abstract of Distinction 2018 and the AHS Early Career Lecture Award 2020.
