The Neurodegeneration and Neuroimflammation group’s mission is to work in a multidisciplinary, coordinated and translational way to increase knowledge of neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases to respond to the needs and demands of those suffering from them and their families.

Main lines of research

Clinical-care priority lines:

  • Study of neuropsychological alterations and cognitive rehabilitation in multiple sclerosis.
  • Study of the emotional impact, coping and adaptation to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
  • Improvement of the adherence to immunomodulatory treatment in multiple sclerosis.
  • Use of a multi-parametric, multi-user and multi-functional database for multiple sclerosis.
  • Implementation of the use of electronic devices to assess disability in patients with multiple sclerosis.
  • Application of new cranial MR techniques as prognosis markers in multiple sclerosis.
  • Computer assisted systematization of lesions seen on cranial MRIs in patients with multiple sclerosis.
  • Application and integration of information technologies in assistance activity and research in multiple sclerosis.
  • Treatment of orphans in hereditary ataxia.

 

Priority lines in basic research:

  • Study of the profiles of specific miRNAs for different clinical forms and progressions of multiple sclerosis.
  • Study of the DNA methylation profile of patients with multiple sclerosis.
  • Study of the molecular mechanisms associated to neurodegeneration.
  • Study of the progression of cognitive function biomarkers in patients with multiple sclerosis.
  • Determination of biological factors (genetic and biochemical) in response to immunomodulatory treatments in multiple sclerosis.
  • Study of the intestinal microbes in Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Bank of DNA, CSF, and serum samples for neuroimmunology diseases.
Strategic objectives
  • To be the reference group in the province of Girona in research and teaching in multiple sclerosis and other diseases
  • To have a national and international presence in the area of research in multiple sclerosis
  • To consolidate clinical research into multiple sclerosis
  • To consolidate basic research into multiple sclerosis
  • To promote and lead research into new treatments for multiple sclerosis
  • To begin clinical research into Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders
  • To begin clinical research into Alzheimer’s and other dementias
  • To consolidate clinical research into hereditary ataxia
  • To lead research into neuropsychology of multiple sclerosis on a national level
  • To establishing research collaborations with other national and international groups for multiple sclerosis
  • To promote research into multiple sclerosis in nursing and neuropsychology
  • To promote training and teaching in multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, hereditary ataxia and dementias for health professionals, specialists and affected patients and relatives alike
  • Technological innovation in multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases
