IHC 2021 | The importance of studying causal relationships between migraine and other complex traits

Luis Marco García-Marín, Biotechnology Engineer, PhD student in Statistical Genetics, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute & The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, describes the study looking at causal relationships between migraine and other complex traits, such as cardiovascular diseases, lifestyle factors, psychiatric phenotypes, respiratory diseases, and others. The study aims were to establish the relationship between self-reported migraine and other complex traits using genetic data and the hypothesis-free approach. Mr García-Marín describes the importance of this study in identifying the underlying causes of migraine and realizing that genetic data could be a more informative and better alternative than traditional studies such as randomized control trials. This interview took place during the International Headache Congress 2021.
