Description

Brindisi Research Center is a Reference Center for the diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases recognized by AIM (Italian Association of Myology), and develops research activities devoted to the study neurogenetic, neuroimaging and neurorehabilitation of children with neuromuscular diseases. Our Center, in collaboration with Bosisio Parini Center and several neurological clinics, also participates in clinical-genetic-functional studies on HSP and other hereditary neuropathies, through the collection of extensive case studies throughout the national territory.
