Hartmann Andreas


My medical studies and neurology internship (neurology enlaced with psychiatry and neurosurgery) were done in Germany.

From 1997-2000, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow on Parkinson disease (PD) in Paris (INSERM U289/675, Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpêtrière) on the role of programmed cell death in the pathophysiology of this disorder. Upon completion of my internship in 2003 (Phillips-Universität Marburg, Germany), I returned to Paris to work as a neurologist sub-specialized in movement disorders. In parallel to ongoing work on the molecular and cellular biology of PD and a special interest in clinical neuroprotection studies relevant to PD, I made the acquaintance of Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (TS) through a multicenter national study which I coordinated from 2004-2007.

After we successfully applied for the creation of a French Reference Center for TS in 2007, my clinical and research interests have since then shifted to TS. Currently, I am the coordinator of the French Reference Centre for TS and past chair (2017-2020) of the European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS).
