Neuro-repairing medicine and advanced therapies

Head of program: Dr. Joan Vidal

Researchers:  Dr. Jesús Benito, Dr. Gerardo Conesa, Dr. Guillermo García, Dr. Hatice Kumru, Dr. Xavier Navarro


Position our Institute as a national and international reference center for clinical phases of translational research in clinical trials, advanced therapies and regenerative medicine applied to spinal cord injury (SCI) and acquired brain damage (ACD).

Program Goals

  1. Promote the development of clinical trials in neuroregenerative operations.
  2. Develop multimodal neuromodulation strategies combined with intensive robot-assisted training.
  3. Develop a biodatabase of information derived from typification of patients at clinical (functional and structural) and subclinical level (neurophysiological and structural, through structural and functional and genetic neuroimaging) that serves for selection of candidates for this type of study.
