OUR ANNUAL MEETINGS
26/27 MARCH 29/30 JUNE
In light of the guidelines received last Monday (20 April) by our Rectorate (https://www.unige.ch/coronavirus/fr/organisation-devenements/), namely that “ Events: Under cantonal public-health rules, people are still not allowed to gather in groups of more than five. This means that public events organized by or with the University of Geneva, or that will take place on University premises, remain prohibited until at least 1 September 2020”, we had to make the decision to cancel our annual retreat in Villars for this year.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
2019 - 21/22 March
For this ninth edition, the translational approach put together by Synapsy stimulated a productive dialogue between the three disciplines and led to new insights on mental illness. Special sessions were organized :
– Genetics and how it could help research on mental illnesses was discussed by geneticists Emmanouil Dermitzakis (UNIGE) and Alexandre Reymond (UNIL). The genetic approach will be strengthened in all areas of research over the last four years of Synapsy, thanks to their support.
– A session on open data with the intervention of Dr. Cécile Lebrand (UNIL/CHUV), among others, in order to prepare members to the data management plan required by the SNSF.
The Villars retreat is also a unique opportunity for its almost 120 participants (cf. photo below) to network through the consortium .
Professeur Philippe Conus, Member of Synapsy Steering Committee, Head of the General Psychiatry Dept of the CHUV but also a talented saxophonist, helped stimulate exchanges between neuroscientists and psychiatrists by performing a Jazz concert with his band, very much to the delight of all participants of this 2019 edition.
