Visual Snow Research to Restart in early 2015 PDF Print E-mail
I have heard from Dr. Schankin and Prof Goadsby today. They have found a physician who will start early next year. This doctor will most likely be a full-time researcher for visual snow syndrome. Unfortunately, there are still administrative issues to be solved, and this takes time. So research will not get off the ground for several more months. The research will take place in Munich and London (not the U.S. this time). Some of what we will see in 2015 involved with visual snow research will be brain imaging, electrophysiological testing, pharmacological studies and the first treatment trials. While US patients are not ruled out, there would be the jet lag problem like last time, so they would need to plan to spend about 2 weeks in Europe if interested in participating. It will be several more weeks until I have anything else to share as Dr. Schankin and Prof. Goadsby and trying to set up a meeting with the new doctor that they want to bring on board, as well as more to work out details with the hospital administration.
