Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for attending the international postgraduate course “Migraine and Stroke: common and specific mechanisms” held in Kuopio between 6.–8.6.2016.

The aim of this course was to cover the basic pathobiology, genetics and neuro-immune interactions of these two commonly existing disorders that share similarities. During the course scientific program and social program, we stimulated discussion, new ideas and interaction between national and international scientists.


With best regards,
