Will Erwin Headache Research Center
Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the Texas Medical Center is pleased to announce the launch of the Will Erwin Headache Research Center. The Center was created with a $20 million pledge over 10 years from the Will Erwin Headache Research Foundation. Led by Mark Burish, M.D., Ph.D., a neurologist who is fellowship trained in interventional pain management, the WEHRC is dedicated to the study of cluster headaches and other debilitating types of headaches. Our goal is to continue to raise funds and ultimately develop a collaborative national consortium of centers committed to understanding and treating chronic headaches.
Dr. Burish received his M.D./Ph.D. in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in neurology at the University of California at San Francisco, where he was co-chief resident of the UCSF Moffitt-Long Service and was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Society. He completed his fellowship in interventional pain management in the department of Anesthesiology at UCSF.
The WEHRC represents the Institute’s commitment of energy, talent and research dollars to help people with debilitating headaches recover and participate more fully in life. By continuing to raise funds and by working collaboratively with other researchers across the country, we hope to rapidly impact the lives of patients.
