Zurich Brain Research Institute

The Brain Research Institute ("Hifo") is a neuroscience research center in the medical faculty of the University of Zurich.

The four laboratories on neural circuit dynamics, neural plasticity, neuroepigenetics, and neural regeneration and repair focus on basic research topics ranging from molecular and cellular processes to network functions in the nervous system. The main areas of investigation concern the ability of the central nervous system to learn new information and to regenerate after injury, the mechanisms underlying synaptic transmission, plasticity and synapses formation.

Pierre and Marie Curie University

Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC) has more than 5,000 researchers and professors working in 100 laboratories across four divisions: Modeling & Engineering; Energy, Matter & the Universe; Living Earth & Environment; Life & Health.

The research ranges from fundamental to applied, with the aim to push the boundaries of knowledge and to explore major issues of sustainable development that preoccupy our society in the twenty-first century, including health, climate change, water, biodiversity, energy, and communications.
