Who we are
Our mission is to accelerate the development of neurotechnology for human benefit.
The Wyss Center, is an independent, not for profit organization that provides the expertise, facilities and resources to transform creative neuroscience research into clinical solutions that will improve the lives of people with nervous system disorders.
Established by a generous donation from the Swiss entrepreneur and philanthropist Hansjörg Wyss, the Wyss Center presents a new model in translational neurotechnology research, offering competitively awarded support for projects that have the potential to make substantial clinical impact.
Through its resident experts, technology platforms and funding the Wyss Center identifies and fosters creative new technology-linked solutions to treat nervous system disorders.
Working at the Wyss Center
At the Wyss Center we transform pioneering research ideas into clinical solutions that will benefit people and society. People are at the heart of what we do and we need a dedicated and motivated team working at the highest scientific and ethical standards.
Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland after Zurich and the most international city in Europe with over 40% of its population coming from outside Switzerland.
We are always looking for outstanding candidates with the ability to provide technical solutions for multiple neurotechnology applications in a cutting edge, multidisciplinary project-based environment.
The WISE team
The Wyss Center’s unique interdisciplinary team of experts, the WISE team, are key members of all supported research projects. The WISE team includes neuroscientists and engineers from industry and academia, as well as experienced regulatory, and clinical experts.
The team works closely internally, and as partners, with academic researchers, industry collaborators and clinicians, as well as device regulatory specialists.
