Dr. Josep Dalmau Receives Prestigious Award for Research in Autoimmune Brain Disease

Pioneer in the field of autoimmune encephalitis, Josep Dalmau was recently honored with the prestigious Rey Jaime I Award for medical research in a ceremony in Barcelona, Spain. His group’s achievements are in the area of autoimmune disorders that affect the brain, including the recognition of several new syndromes in autoimmune encephalitis. They are credited with the discovery of many novel antibodies, the development of diagnostic tests used worldwide, and research into the mechanisms of action of immune cells. Dr. Dalmau currently serves a joint appointment at the University of Barcelona as a researcher, lecturer, consultant and an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania. At AEA we are very grateful for the groundbreaking research by Dr. Dalmau and his group of dedicated physician-scientist colleagues. To read the full article, please click here.
