Swiss Genomics Forum 2019

As genome analysis becomes commonplace in research and clinics, Switzerland has much to offer in terms of scientific strength, quality of its healthcare system (including universal coverage) and detailed patient phenotyping.

The Swiss Genomics Forum 2019 (SGF2019) organized by the Health 2030 Genome Center will take place on September 27, 2019 at the Campus Biotech in Geneva. The SGF2019 will bring together researchers, clinicians, patient communities, and other stakeholder groups to meet and discuss the future of genomics around the following topics: genomics, diseases, personalized health, data and collaboration.

OptoDBS 2019

State of the art of current therapies for deep brain stimulation

Pathological circuit function is at the origin of many symptoms of neurological disorders. The optogenetic toolbox applied to animal models of behavioral diseases has in the last years led to decisive progress with the hope that deep brain stimulation (DBS) may be used for rational treatments.

OptoDBS 2019 will discuss the state of the art of current therapies for DBS and ask how a better understanding of neural circuit dysfunction in pathology could inspire novel protocols. A particular emphasis will be on novel DBS indications such as obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD), depression or addiction. The meeting will take place from June 20 to 22, 2019, at the Campus Biotech in Geneva.
