We are a dynamic and international team who work on and teach multidisciplinary neuroscience and our missions are to:
Develop state-of-the-art research and teaching core facilities
The department conducts cutting edge, curiosity-driven basic and clinical research to study brain function and dysfunction at multiple levels, from molecules, systems to behavior.
The department hosts 13 research groups. Our approaches use molecular, cellular and imaging tools to ask questions about the genes and pathways underlying:
The proximity of the CHUV, CNP, BMI of EPFL, the NCCR-Synapsy program and the wider Lemanic Neuroscience community drives the interdisciplinary interaction between basic scientists and clinicians and is a pillar of the DNF.
