Andrew Hershey, MD, PhD, FAHS, received his undergraduate degree at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. He earned an honors degree in biochemistry; his research involved the enzyme kinetic properties of alcohol dehydrogenase in yeast.
After undergraduate school, Dr. Hershey attended the MD/PhD program at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri. His PhD research thesis was entitled: "The Rat Substance P Receptor: cDNA and Genomic Cloning, Functional Expression, mRNA Distribution, and Mutational Analysis of Desensitization Responses."
After earning his MD and PhD, Dr. Hershey was an intern and resident in pediatrics at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO. He then was an adult neurology resident at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis, MO, followed by his child neurology fellowship at St. Louis Children's Hospital, St. Louis, MO.
After his fellowship, Dr. Hershey joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, where he is director of the Headache Center.
Dr. Hershey's research interests currently include the improved diagnosis and treatment of childhood headache disorders, characterization of outcome responses, studies in new pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment regimes, and the neurogenetics of migraines.
