The Lancet  Neurology Autoimmune Disorder Conference


Maarten Titulaer, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Dr Titulaer has been trained as a neurologist at Leiden University, the Netherlands, which he combined with a PhD tract. In 2010, he obtained his PhD cum laude, entitled “Prediction of small cell lung cancer in the Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome”, under his advisors Prof. Verschuuren and Prof Roos. As a project of his PhD tract, he went as an ENS fellow to Oxford University (under Dr Lang). The screening recommendations of this thesis earned him a Prinses Beatrix Fonds Prize and made him the Vera Bonta Prize 2011 recipient as well as the LUMC thesis 2011 recipient.

As a clinical research fellow of neurooncology and immunology, supported by the Dutch Cancer Society, he went to the laboratory of Dr Dalmau and Professor Balice-Gordon at the University of Pennsylvania, working on the clinical characteristics and natural history of anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, and the basic aspects of antibodies in anti-LGI1 encephalitis. His observational cohort study was featured in both the AAN contemporary clinical issues plenary session and the ANA Derek Denny Brown plenary session in 2012. Dr Titulaer continued his fellowship at the University of Barcelona (under Dr Dalmau). Recently he has returned to the Netherlands (Erasmus Medical Center) as an Erasmus MC fellow and assistant professor of neurology. He combines clinical work including tertiary nationwide clinics in antibody-mediated neurological syndromes with translational research in the field of autoimmune encephalitis.
