Autoimmune Encephalitis
The bridge between Neurology and Psychiatry

The April 2019 symposium for doctors and medical students will bring together experts from around the world who are familiar with the troubling fact that autoimmune encephalitis is often misdiagnosed as psychiatric illness due to its presenting symptoms. Speakers include Dr. Josep Dalmau.

See more information on the AE Symposium.

What is AE Alliance?

The Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance was started by families and patients affected by autoimmune encephalitis. Founded in 2012 the AE Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Durham North Carolina.

The Autoimmune Encephalitis (AE) Alliance strives to educate physicians in evidence-based best practices for the diagnosis and treatment of AE. Successful patient care requires a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach.

The AE Alliance endeavors to establish a supportive community of patients, families and caregivers, so that no one faces autoimmune encephalitis alone.

The AE Alliance works to facilitate scientific research into the causes of AE and its treatment, with confidence that a cure will be found.
