Synapsis Forum 2021

Scientific exchange for researchers investigating Alzheimer’s disease and neurodegeneration

8 - 9 November, 2021 at Hotel Schloss Gerzensee in Gerzensee

Under the motto “Collaboration is King” the Synapsis Foundation invites supported researchers to the 4th Synapsis Forum. During 1.5 days the event will offer plenty opportunities for scientific exchange and networking. As we were only able to meet online in 2020 we are looking forward to meeting the “Synapsis Family” after nearly two years and to welcome the new members in person!


Synapsis Foundation invites all researcher that receive funding from the foundation as well as one additional project member of the supported lab.


During the event, selected researchers will give talks and provide insights into their research projects supported by Synapsis Foundation. We are glad, that Prof. Christian Haass will give a keynote lecture on microglial modulation on the first day. During the poster session in the evening, all participating researchers are invited to present their work. A networking session on the second day will offer many opportunities for networking and to develop joint ideas.

The poster session will be core element of the program. We encourage all supported researchers to participate in the poster session on Monday, 8 November 2021 and to give junior researchers the opportunity to present their work.
