Anna completed her PhD in Neurological Sciences and Migraine at the Institute of Neurology-Queen Square, where she investigated the therapeutic potentials of novel pharmacological innervations in migraine treatment. She then moved to the University of California San Francisco, where she focused her research on the investigation of brain networks involved in headaches pathophysiology and the effectiveness of neurostimulation in migraine. Anna is now The Senior Migraine Trust Fellow based at the Wolfson CARD- King’s College London, where she serves as a Senior Lecturer.

Dr Andreou’s research interests are focused on the neurobiology of headache disorders, and factors influencing the development and evolution of these conditions. Her research focus also expands to the investigation and development of new therapeutic targets for the acute and preventive treatment of migraine and of other headache disorders and facial pain.
