Paediatric Neurology

Neurologia Pediàtrica a Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca

The Paediatric Neurology research group mainly focuses on studying genetic disorders affecting development of the nervous system in paediatric patients. Its main emphasis is on paroxysmal neurological disorders and neuromuscular disorders. Most of the disorders they study are considered rare.


As well as its work on researching the molecular bases of several of these rare diseases, one aspect common to all the group’s projects is research on transferring findings in the fields of molecular diagnosis, genetic counselling and new genetic or pharmacological therapies. In order to make these discoveries, they dedicate part of their research to the molecules involved in the physiopathological mechanism of the diseased studies, always in direct relation to patient consultation.
