Announcing the WBP Forum 2020: Bringing Swiss Precision to Medicine
Update as of April 2020:
Due to the developing health and economic situation across the globe, and the associated uncertainties regarding health and safety, transportation, catering, and access issues, we are exploring different formats for the International Forum on Sex and Gender differences in Brain and Mental Health (for example, we may decide to make the event partially or completely virtual).
We will inform you about our plans for the Forum by early May 2020. Until then, we recommend that you do not book flights or hotels even if you had confirmed your participation, and we are at your disposal should you have any questions or concerns.
We wish you, your family, your friends, and everyone around the globe health, well-being, and solidarity.
It’s official: The Women’s Brain Project (WBP) International Forum on Brain and Mental Health 2020 will be taking place at the ETH in Zurich on the weekend of 19-20 September this year.
The theme is “Sex and gender differences in brain and mental health throughout the lifespan”.
The Forum will bring together experts, patients, caregivers, scientists, and individuals with a passion for brain and mental health – whether it comes from a personal experience or not.
Interactive panels will be presented over two days. As is tradition, the program will take participants on a journey – this time exploring brain and mental health from childhood to the old age, before diving into novel approaches for mental health and future-oriented solutions.
Although it is still too early to announce specific speakers or panels, WBP is thrilled to once again be working with experts from around the world. Prevention, pregnancy, depression, Alzheimer’s, migraines, technology, big data will all be featured.
It is the third such event organized by WBP, each with the underlying red thread of sex and gender differences in brain and mental health as the gateway to precision medicine.
We are grateful to be collaborating with the University of Zurich as well as the University of Berne, our trusted sponsors, and the global scientific community. We will share speakers, program updates, sponsor-related news, and other exciting developments over the course of the next few months.
