As head of the Department and attending in the Paediatric Neuroimmunology Unit at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, I combine treating patients in the clinical Unit with research. I currently lead research projects on paediatric autoimmune diseases for the IDIBAPS - Hospital Clínic (Barcelona) Neuroimmunology programme, accredited by CIBERER (the Centre for Biomedical Network Research on Rare Diseases) and as a Clinical Expertise Unit (XUEC network) for the treatment of autoimmune encephalitis and other antibody-related brain disorders. The aim of my commitment to research is to find new diagnostic and therapeutic tools for nervous system autoimmune and inflammatory diseases that may help us improve our patients' prognosis and quality of life.
