Medical Advisory Board

The Medical Advisory Board replaced the long-serving Scientific Planning Committee in November of 2017. This committee consists of leading clinicians, researchers, and other experts in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of autoimmune encephalitis. Their work continues to help press forward research on treatment protocols, the establishment of an international AE database, and to ensure that AEA puts forth sound medical information to the public. We are grateful for each member’s generous service.
