I am a neurologist, Head of the Movement Disorder Unit of the Neurology Service. Attention to Parkinson's, dystonia and other neurodegenerative diseases has been one of the challenges that attracted me to Neurology. With this vocation I have attended hundreds of patients with a personalized dedication, introducing new treatments and diagnostic means, and carrying out clinical, epidemiological, therapeutic and basic research work; In short, with an innovative, and enthusiastic attitude.

I have my degree in Medicine & Surgery at UB and Doctorate in Neuroscience from the UAB, where I am Associate Professor of Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine.
I specialized in Neurology, through the MIR system, at the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital. I have been consolidated as a general neurologist at the Hospital de Sabadell Parc Tauli for 10 years. I have specialized in the field of neurodegenerative diseases and movement disorders. Since April 2008 I am the Head of the Movement Disorder Unit of the Hospital.
I am a clinical investigator of the VHIR Neurodegenerative Diseases Group. I have been a principal investigator in more than 50 clinical trials and research projects. That have generated numerous publications and scientific communications. I have investigated several clinical aspects of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders and my main lines of research are the clinical and epidemiology of Parkinson's disease and new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. I am an expert in botulinum toxin infiltration and have pioneered a complex treatment of Parkinson's disease with a levodopa pump.
I have received about twenty awards from scientific societies and I have been distinguished as “Academic corresponent” of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Catalonia.
I have been the President of the Catalan Society of Neurology (2012-2014), Member of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands (2015) and the Patronage of the Interuniversity Institute Foundation-InterAc Salut (2015), Vocal Teaching Director of the Spanish Society of Neurology, (2015-2017) and Vice President of the National Commission of the Specialization of Neurology

Vall d'Hebron has participated in a phase III clinical trial which confirmed the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous infusion of levodopa therapy.

This initiative is part of a pioneering study that seeks to assess how the relationship between different age groups can influence the quality of life and mental health of patients.

Dr. Miquel Vila, head of the Neurodegenerative Diseases research group at VHIR, is the co-chair of the local organising committee. And Dr. Ariadna Laguna, principal investigator of the same group, is a scientific ambassador.
