Just confirmed for the 2011 Clusterbuster conference in Chicago:

Dr. Larry Robbins:   http://www.headachedrugs.com/

Lawrence Robbins, M.D. is considered to be one of the top 10 experts in the country on management of headache medications. His books, Headache Help and Mangement of Headache and Headache Medications have been very well reviewed, and both are bestsellers. Dr. Robbins also discusses non-medication strategies, as well as alternative treatments (herbs, exercise, acupuncture, physical therapy, etc.).

Dr. Robbins has his practice in Northbrook, Illinois. The Robbins Headache Clinic has a reputation as being one of the top places in the United States to go for help with headaches.

Dr. John Halpern:

Dr. Halpern is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School and a Director of the Laboratory for Integrative Psychiatry at McLean Hospital. He has completed his Psychiatry Residency at Harvard Longwood and a 3-year Fellowship in Drug and Alcohol Abuse Research at McLeanÂ’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Center. Dr. Halpern is Board Certified in General Psychiatry and is also the Associate Director of Substance Abuse Research of McLean's Biological Psychiatry Laboratory. He is currently leading MDMA-assisted experimental psychotherapy sessions for patients with severe anxiety related to advanced-stage cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Halpern has been working closely with Clusterbusters for many years plus now and this collaboration has led to the first publication on the use of psilocybin and LSD for cluster headache, the first cluster headache specific headache diary (available for free at the home page of Clusterbusters), and the discovery of Bromo-LSD (BOL) as a potential non-hallucinogenic treatment of CH.
