Clinical advisory board

N1‑Headache’s clinical advisory board members are affiliated with distinguished medical centers around the world.


Prof. Hans-Christoph Diener MD PhD
“The collection of real world clinical data combined with n=1 analytics to measure individual outcomesand develop individual patient profiles is becoming an increasingly important paradigm in medicine. This is the promise of N1‑Headache.”
Prof. Hans-Christoph Diener MD PhD

Professor and Head of Neurology
Department of Neurology
University Hospital & Essen Headache Center
Essen, Germany

Prof. Hans-Christoph Diener MD PhD is currently Professor of Neurology, Chairman of the Department of Neurology and Director of the Essen Headache Centre at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. He was formerly President of the German Neurological Society, President of the European Headache Federation (EHF), and the International Headache Society (IHS) and chairs the German Headache Consortium and the German Stroke Data Bank.

Prof. Diener’s work helped establish migraine as a neurological disorder when many thought it was a psychosomatic disease. His subsequent contributions to the field include identifying the factors that lead to drug-induced headache and co-authoring the guidelines that set a common standard for migraine drug trials.

Prof. Diener has authored or co-authored 900 articles in peer reviewed journals (181 as first author, 19 in the NEJM), 324 invited reviews, and 343 book chapters, served as the editor or author of 81 books; and has been the Principal Investigator in more than 30 trials on the acute treatment and prophylaxis of headache disorders.

Peter Goadsby, MD PhD
“Finding out something that you don’t have to avoid is as important as finding out something that you do. That’s what is attractive about N1‑Headache.”
Peter Goadsby, MD PhD

Professor of Neurology
Kings College London, United Kingdom
University of California, San Francisco

Peter Goadsby is a leading clinician in migraine. He was appointed a Wellcome Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Neurology, University College London in 1995. He was Professor of Clinical Neurology and Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London.

He is now Professor of Neurology in the Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco and remains Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond St, London.

His major research interests are in the basic mechanisms of head pain in both experimental settings and in the clinical context of headache management. The work of the Headache Group involves human imaging and electrophysiological studies in primary headache, as well as experimental studies of trigeminovascular nociception. The aim is to understand what parts of the brain drive and modulate headache syndromes, and how those might be modified by treatment.

Richard B. Lipton, MD
“The N1‑Headache approach is unique in that it is specifically designed to allow migraine patients to identify and manage the factors that influence the day-to-day variation in their risk ofattacks.”

Anne MacGregor, MD
“N1‑Headache gives patients individual information that they can use to help them understand how their migraine is developing over time; information and understanding are the key to effective management and so much more powerful than just a prescription for medication.”
Anne MacGregor, MD
