Because our brains
and mental health
deserve precision
medicine for the
greater good

The Women’s Brain Project (WBP) is an international non-profit organization based in Switzerland harnessing the brilliance of a global team of scientists. We are experts from various disciplines who work with patients and caregivers towards the implementation of sex and gender within precision medicine, from basic science to novel technologies.

"From patients'
differences to patients'
characteristics, to achieve precision medicine and render healthcare systems sustainable."

Our mission is to bring precision to medical
research, towards sustainability in healthcare

Men and women are different when it comes to disease risks – frequency, severity, symptomatology, diagnostic journey and even response to treatments. Our mission is to clearly identify such differences and leverage them for sex and gender tailored solutions, as well as to bring precision to novel technologies, clinical practice and policy for brain and mental disease. We publish research and lead a global debate, engaging with experts, policymakers, patients and the public, and campaign for sustainability in healthcare

Our approach to make a difference while focusing on the differences.

It’s a no-brainer: Our success requires your donation.

Our contribution for
more clarity.

One of the main goals of the Women’s Brain Project is to generate new evidence on sex and gender differences in brain and mental diseases. See the Impact we are having through our publications.

Where knowledge becomes an eventful journey.

We love to share our expertise with all who want to change the future by organizing a variety of events and workshops.
