Young Swiss Society for Neuroscience 

Our Mission

The primary mission of the ySSN is to create a dynamic scientific network for the young neuroscience community in Switzerland.

To attain this goal, we organize events throughout the year which serve as a platform for young neuroscientists to increase their visibility and audience.​ We provide environments where early-career researchers can develop professional skills to aid their success in research. Specifically, we aim to: 

  • Increase knowledge transfer between trainees, laboratories, and institutions.

  • Build effective communication skills to engage the audience in thinking and discussing the research of early-career neuroscientists.

  • Create a diverse network that works together to train and promote outstanding future neuroscientists.

About the Young Swiss Society for Neuroscience 
The Young Swiss Society for Neuroscience is an organization funded by the Swiss Society for Neuroscience focused on the promotion of early-career neuroscientists in Switzerland.
​​We believe science communication is a fundamental part of the professional development of a researcher. Following this belief, we organize annual meetings and events to provide trainees the opportunity to share their research with the neuroscience community. The ySSN brings together neuroscientists from institutes across Switzerland with the goal of fostering scientific exchange and networking in a vibrant and friendly environment.
