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

The Women’s Brain Foundation (WBF) 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.

Please donate towards our goal to establish a research institute with a clear focus on sex and gender precision medicine.

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

We bring Swiss precision to medical treatment and care to ensure 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 transform the development of drugs and medical treatments through sex and gender factors as a gateway to precision medicine and care. We do this by running research projects, consult with industry partners, engage with regulators, government and non-governmental organisations and finally, develop novel technologies to bring new treatment options to patients & care-givers.

Through these four pillars, we are making the change a reality:

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

Our contribution for more clarity.
