Post-doctoral Researcher: Dr. Iñigo Gabilondo

Graduated in Medicine from The University of Navarre (2005), specialist in Neurology from the University Hospital of Cruces (2010) and doctor in medicine from the University of Barcelona (2014). From 2010 to 2014 he developed his doctoral thesis in the field of neuroimaging in multiple sclerosis with the group of Neuroinmunology at the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona (Dr. Pablo Villoslada was the director of the thesis) through a contract of Río Ortega from de Institute of Carlos III. His thesis was focused on the analysis of visual system through neuroimaging techniques (Magnetic Resonance and Tomography of Optic Coherence) as a model to understand the axonal degeneration in multiple sclerosis. In 2013, he made a predoctoral stay during a period of 6 months in the group of multiple sclerosis at the University of California- San Francisco (tutor Ari Green). In his doctoral training period, he obtained clinically significant results about the axonal impairment diffusion’s physiopathology in multiple sclerosis, its impact on patients’ disability, and the use of “Tomography of Optic Coherence” as a prognostic bioindicator and treatment response (Gabilondo I et al, Ann Neurol 2014; Ann Neurol 2015, JNNP 2013; Martínez Lapiscina et al, Mult Scler 2014; Ortiz S. et al, Neurology 2014). From 2014 to present, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Deusto and in the IIS bioCruces, and he works on the study of neurodegenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease through neuroimaging in different research projects.
