Washington: Brigham Young University chemistry professor Emily Bates has identified mutations in a gene that makes people more susceptible to migraine headaches.The study is the first demonstration of a genetic cause for the common migraine and is an important step in the search for a cure."I had migraines really frequently and severely. I would lose my vision, vomit uncontrollably - it would wipe out an entire day," Bates said.She decided then as a high school student that she was going to work on migraines, that she was going to figure them out and help find a cure.After earning a Ph.D. in genetics from Harvard, Bates did post-doctoral research with a team of geneticists led by Louis Ptacek at University of California San Francisco`s medical school.
