Synapsis Forum 2022

Scientific exchange for researchers investigating Alzheimer’s and neurodegeneration

21-22 November 2022 at Hotel Schloss Gerzensee in Gerzensee 

The Synapsis Forum aims to bring together researchers from all over Switzerland and beyond who are investigating Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. During 1.5 days the participants will have plenty opportunities for scientific discussions. Especially for young researchers the event offers an excellent platform to expand their professional network.

The participation is limited to researchers who received funding from the Synapsis Foundation. Each supported researcher is invited to bring along one accompanying person who is working on the supported project.

During the event, selected researchers will provide insights into their research projects supported by Synapsis Foundation. We are very pleased that Prof. Pieter Jelle Visser, University of Amsterdam, and Prof. Claudio Bassetti, University of Bern, will join our event and give keynote lectures. During the poster session in the evening of the first day, all participants are invited to present their work. 

Networking Session – Your ideas are wanted
To make sure that participants get the most out of the event, we ask the participants to suggest topics for the networking session this year. We will select a set of topics and do our best to offer workshops on them at the Synapsis Forum. The topics may range from data sharing to collaborations between basic and clinical researchers, translation of research results to brainstorming for joint research ideas.

The poster session will be core element of the program. We encourage all supported researchers to participate in the poster session on Monday, 21 November 2022 and to give early career researchers the opportunity to present their work.
