The Neuroimmunology group of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona and the Institute of Biomedical Research August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), led by Drs. Josep Dalmau and Francesc Graus, is completely involved in the events to celebrate the World Day of Encephalitis and it unites the efforts of other groups, especially the Encephalitis Society of the United Kingdom, but also the Anti-NMDA Foundation of Canada and the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance of the USA.

In the UPenn Center of Autoimmune Neurology and later in our institutions, Hospital Clínic and IDIBAPS, we have identified 12 of the 16 antibodies related to a new type of encephalitis characterizedin recent years, autoimmune encephalitis.
