Institute presentation


The group activity led by Dr. Pablo Mir is focused on the movement disorders, from both clinical and research perspectives. This activity happens in the clinical context of the Movement Disorders Unit in the Clinical Neuroscience Department at the University Hospital Virgen del Rocio, being part of the Andalusian Health System (Servicio Anadaluz de Salud (SAS). This is a large University Hospital with a Movement Disorder Unit which collaborates closely with the Neuropaediatric Department. Our centre sees 30-40 new patients with TS a year and has over 100 ongoing patients. There is an active collaboration with other regional centres bringing the total of new patients per year to over 50.

Dr. Pablo MIR and his collaborators constitute a group that has managed to get competitive funding. The research lines of the group during the last years have focused on the study of clinical aspects and genetic factors of a variety of movement disorders. The research line of genetics of movement disorders has been reinforced since the joining of Dr. Pilar Gomez-Garre to the group who has wide experience in the localisation and characterisation of different genes involved in several neurological diseases. The results of these studies have lead to several papers and national and international congress communications. TS has become one of the main research topics for the group and it has been reinforced with the incorporation of Dr. Marcos Madruga, a Child Neurologist focusing on tics and others movement disorders.
