In order to improve networking and the exchange of knowledge between scientists from different institutions, Synapsis organizes events for researchers. The intention is to support the establishment of new research collaborations and to make optimal use of synergies.


Synapsis Forum 2018

Scientific exchange for researchers fighting against Alzheimer’s

12. and 13. November 2018 at Schloss Hotel Gerzensee in Gerzensee (near Bern)

Synapsis Foundation is organizing the first Synapsis Forum for researchers supported by the foundation. By bringing together researchers working in the field of neurodegenerative disorders, the foundation intends not only to foster knowledge exchange, but to give scientists a platform for networking and community building. 

Synapsis invites all researcher that receive funding from the foundation, as well as one additional project member of the supported lab. 



During the two-day event, selected researchers will give talks and provide insight into their research projects supported by Synapsis Foundation. In addition, two renowned experts, Prof. Adriano Aguzzi (University Hospital Zurich) and Prof. Mathias Jucker (University of Tübingen and DZNE) will share their expertise. During a poster session in the afternoon of the first day, all supported researchers will receive the chance to present their work. A networking event on the second day will offer many opportunities to meet other scientists informally.
