Fernando-Alonso-FrechFernando Alonso-Frech is a medical doctor specializing in Clinical Neurophysiology (Hospital Gregorio Marañon Madrid 1992) and Neurology (Hospital Universitario de Getafe. Madrid 2001) He completed his Ph.D. at Clínica Universitaria de Navarra (Pamplona 2006), with a thesis that combined experimental and clinical approaches to investigate neural oscillatory activity in Parkinson´s disease patients implanted for Deep Brain Stimulation. From 2006 to 2011 he was in charge of Neurologic Section at Hospital Universitario de Fuenlabrada (Madrid) being responsible for consulting of movement disorders. Since 2012, he works at Hospital Clinico in Madrid where he is co-Director of the program of functional surgery for movement disorders. In Enero 2015, he joins the CINAC of HM Hospitales. He has also a docent position as honorary collaborator on “Rey Juan Carlos University” from 2010 and has directed two doctoral thesis works. He published more than 20 scientific papers in international journals. He has received awards as co-investigator from Agencia Laín Entralgo (Spain). European Huntington’s Disease Network. (2009-) and from Michael J Fox Foundation (2014-17)
