FIDMAG is directed by Dr. Edith Pomarol-Clotet, psychiatrist and researcher in neuroscience, specialized in neuroimaging. She has received several grants from Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) to study the underlying neuroanatomical abnormalities in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, publishing numerous articles about the subject.
Dr. Peter J McKenna is a psychiatrist. He has a strong international reputation in neuropsychology of schizophrenia and he is the author of three books about clinical and research aspects on that disorder. He is also the author of numerous publications in the main "peer-reviewed" journals.
Currently, FIDMAG consists of a team of 23 professionals dedicated exclusively to research. Many of them are co-funded with support from the ISCIII, PERIS of the Generalitat de Catalunya and other agencies. Currently some Miguel Servet, Sara Borrell, PFIS, FPU and PIF Salut researchers are working at the center, as well as other pre-doctoral researchers and collaborators.
An intrinsic feature of FIDMAG is the close collaboration with psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and health professionals of the centers of the Sisters Hospitallers. Moreover, we maintain strong partnerships with other institutions and universities, both nationally and internationally.
