Elena Hernández


Elena H. Martínez-Lapiscina was born in 1982 in Spain. She studied Medical School at the University of Navarra from 2000 to 2006. After obtaining the top position in the national examination for accessing to a medical residency, she received her residency training for Neurology at the Navarra Hospital (2008-2012). She combined her residency program with a PhD cum laude on the effects of healthy eating on cognitive function (advisor Prof. Dr. Martínez-González and Dr. Clavero, 2010-2013). She started on 2012 a Fellowship in medical image at the Neuroimmunology center with Dr. Villoslada. Her research work is now focused on the cause and the development of biomarkers of demyelinating diseases, especially across retinal and brain image. Since then, she has recently published the suitability of retinal periphlebitis as a marker of disease severity (Neurology, 2013) and she contributes to the study of trans-synaptic degeneration in Multiple Sclerosis (Annals of Neurology, 2014) and the impact of retinal molecular image by Raman Spectroscopy on inflammation assessment.
