VINCENT VAN PESCH
Prof. Vincent van Pesch is Clinical Head at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc and Principal Investigator of the Neurochemistry Unit (Institute of Neuroscience, UClouvain).
He is mainly involved in the diagnosis and treatment of neuro-immunological disorders, among which Multiple Sclerosis, with over 1000 patients followed. He is also involved in clinical neurophysiology and responsible for interpreting neurochemistry and neuro-immunological tests. He is involved in the international MSBase registry. His main research interests include biomarkers for MS and other neurological disorders, immunology of MS and more recently the role of microRNAs and extracellular vesicles in MS. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles.
Minimum two MS experts collaborate to produce an educational slide deck. These slide decks are presented (live) to ParadigMS members, peer reviewed and updated.
The slide decks are published on the ParadigMS website “on behalf of ParadigMS”.
Based on the slide decks, publications are produced. These publications are peer reviewed and published as consensus publications.
Regional (fe: Scandinavian countries, Benelux, …) or national events where state-of-the-art science is transferred to general neurologists and other care givers (nurses, etc) that are confronted with MS in their day to day practice.
Webinars can complement the educational events.
The educational slide decks, events and webinars can be important building blocks of accredited educational programs.
