The award-winning research project is entitled "Synaptic autoimmunity as a cause of postviral psychosis, epilepsy and encephalopathies in childhood." Dr Anna Novials, head of the IDIBAPS group Molecular and metabolic alterations in diabetes, participated in the ceremony remembering her career which has allowed her to receive the two major awards for research awarded by Mutual Medica, the Mutual Médica Fellowship (1993) and the Dr. Font Prize (2008).

Medical Mutual Award is designed for young doctors, who are in their final year of residency or completed it no longer than two years ago. In addition to selecting a winning project, the jury awards two accesits to two research projects, among which is the one led by Dr. Armangué.
