On September 28 and 29, the 1st Regional University Hospital of Malaga will take place in the assembly hall, the 1st Neuroscience Research Conference, which will revolve around multiple sclerosis.

Regionalportada Organized by the Andalusian Public Foundation for Research in Malaga in Biomedicine and Health (FIMABIS) and the Clinical Management Unit of Neurosciences of the Regional University Hospital of Malaga, an extensive and comprehensive program of interest for all professionals in the sector, will seek stimulation of research within the field of neurology, as well as to promote improvements in the attention to personnel. In this sense, the nature of the conference seeks to help achieve greater awareness of multiple sclerosis, as well as providing an adequate setting for the exchange of medical, social and scientific information among attendees.


Pedro Serrano, head of the Neurology Service of the Regional Hospital of Malaga, and organizer-coordinator of the day, encourages participation in an event that “involves a challenge that we accept with enthusiasm, responsibility and enthusiasm,” he assured. Similarly, also qualified that the team has worked “in a scientific program that has sought to collect topics of great appeal presented by a large group of professionals,” he stressed.


As for the program, a first block on Friday, September 28, will begin with the intervention of Dr. Ana Alonso, neurologist and researcher at the UGC of Neurosciences of the Regional Hospital of Malaga, who will focus her intervention on comorbidity in multiple sclerosis . Then, Dr. Virginia Reyes, also a neurologist and researcher of the team, will continue with the role of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease. After a first symposium, Dr. Pedro Serrano, as head of the Neurology Service, will seek to transfer to the attendees the research model that the team carries out in the Regional Hospital of Malaga. The day of Friday will close with Dr. Carlos Arrabal, coordinator of clinical trials of the Unit, who will be responsible for describing the current situation of this field in the context of multiple sclerosis.


The second day, already on the morning of Saturday, September 29, will begin with the presentation ‘Treatments in Multiple Sclerosis. Update ‘, by Dr. Patricia Urbaneja, neurologist and researcher of the Unit. She will be followed by Dr. Teresa Muñoz, also a neurologist and researcher of the team, who will discuss movement disorders in multiple sclerosis. After a second symposium, Dr. Miguel Guerrero, will look at the future of the disease in the coming years with the latest advances that have been developed in the field of research. The third symposium will be the prelude to a final space reserved for conclusions by Dr. Pedro Serrano to end the day.
