NeuroLéman, the network of 160 researchers and clinicians in neurosciences from the Lake Geneva region represents the wide diversity of the neuroscience academic community across universities, schools and hospitals. The overarching goal is to promote innovative and interdisciplinary research to better understand brain function and pathology.
The NeuroLéman Network – established in Spring 2018 – brings together neuroscientists and clinicians from the Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) region from all fields of neuroscience within and across universities and disciplines. Our members are faculty members and group leaders at the EPFL, the Universities of Lausanne (UNIL), Geneva (UNIGE), and Fribourg (UNIFR), as well as of the University Hospitals of Lausanne (CHUV) and Geneva (HUG). Our members are neurobiologists, neuroengineers, computational and theoretical neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists and psychologists.
Our overarching goal is to promote innovative and interdisciplinary research to better understand brain function in health and disease. Building upon the rich and diverse neuroscience environment of the Lac Léman region, we aim to further progress in both basic and clinical neuroscience in and between our member institutes. Our network serves as a platform for the open exchange of research and ideas, and acts as a catalyst for new collaborations.
Central to this effort, our network promotes excellence in the education of students and postdocs. We support three neuroscience doctoral programs (EDNE , EDBB and LNDS) and provide many possibilities for training and scientific exchange through organizing national and international workshops and symposia.
