Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering
Neurotechnology research institute in Geneva, Switzerland.
We unite people and ideas to advance understanding of the brain and drive development of transformative bio and neurotechnologies.
From genes to the whole brain, the Wyss Center unifies neuroscience at all scales. By pursuing innovations and new approaches in neurobiology, neuroimaging and neurotechnology, we reveal unique insights into the mechanisms underlying the dynamics of the brain and the treatment of disease. We use this interdisciplinary knowledge to accelerate the development of devices and therapies for unmet medical needs. Our current work addresses indications such as epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
To achieve our mission, our staff in science, engineering and business, work together with faculty and clinicians in Switzerland and beyond to translate high risk ideas into products that improve lives.
