About us – our foundation

The Synapsis Foundation was established as it was realized that research into Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders is more pressing than ever because (the demographics show that) the populations are getting older. By means of systematic fundraising activities the foundation generates funds to finance excellent research projects.

By working closely together with two affiliated foundations, the Fondazione per lo studio delle malattie neurodegenerative and the Stammbach-Stiftung, we can achieve optimal synergies. The first of these two foundations is a non-profit foundation that has its headquarters in Lugano. It supports both basic research and applied clinical research that is aimed at explaining the complex mechanisms that underlie neurodegenerative diseases. The second foundation is a non-profit foundation that has its headquarters in Basel. Among other causes, it supports the battle against Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer Research Switzerland ARS

Since 2011, the Synapsis Foundation with its research program Alzheimer Research Switzerland ARS has appealed to a larger Swiss public for donations. In line with the foundation’s mission, this approach has resulted in broader-based support for innovative research projects in Switzerland.
