Our mission

The Swiss Brain Foundation supports university research projects in all areas of neurology and neuroscience, focusing on Parkinson’s disease and sleep medicine. Projects in the fields of epilepsy, stroke, concussion, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease can also be funded. Special emphasis is placed on diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic innovations - with the aim of translating basic scientific and clinical results into medical care and for society.

Furthermore, the Swiss Brain Foundation supports medical and scientific continuing education events and training tools for improving medical care and raising public awareness of neuroscience topics.
