A cutting edge research for decoding psychiatric disorders
Researchers and psychiatrists of the National Centre Competence in Research (NCCR) Synapsy have joined forces to study the biological basis of psychiatric disorders.
In order to offer patients new perspectives of a cure and a higher quality of life, this innovative union between psychiatry and neuroscience is seeking to better understand the origins of mental disorders, and thus settle upon better diagnosis and treatments.
Our core values are:
→ Scientific excellence
Created in 2010 and funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the NCCR-Synapsy brings together a hundred scientists from :
- the University of Geneva
- the EPFL
- the Universities of Lausanne and Basel
- the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI)
- and the psychiatry departments of the University Hospitals of Lausanne and Geneva
The NCCR-Synapsy is currently directed by Professor Alexandre Dayer.
