The Foundations: committed to top-notch research in Geneva
Created in 2007, the Adolphe de Rothschild Memorial Professorship in neuroscience is granted for a period of five years to an internationally acclaimed professor who works closely with the University Hospital of Geneva.
The professorship is designed to offer training to a new generation of researchers and practitioners, particularly in the field of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. These serious medical conditions present a major challenge for an aging population.
The Foundations wish to support research to find solutions for these diseases, which affect more than 150 million people worldwide.
