Located in Geneva, Campus Biotech hosts EPFL centers and laboratories, whose professors, researchers and collaborators actively participate in scientific advances in the fields of neurosciences, digital neurotechnologies and global health.

Campus Biotech view

Campus Biotech is a Swiss Center of excellence in biotechnology and life sciences created and purpose built to cross boundaries between disciplines and sectors. Its four founding partners – the Bertarelli Family, Hansjörg Wyss, EPFL and the University of Geneva – share a commitment to working across, rather than between lines.

Center for Neuroprosthetics

In partnership with the Bertarelli Foundation, the Defitech Foundation and Medtronic, EPFL created at Campus Biotech a world-class research center, the Center for Neuroprosthetics (CNP), which concentrates its activities on the issues of rehabilitation, brain-computer interfaces and the development of new prosthetics.

Blue Brain Project

The aim of the EPFL Blue Brain Project, a Swiss brain research initiative founded and directed by Professor Henry Markram, is to establish simulation neuroscience as a complementary approach alongside experimental, theoretical and clinical neuroscience to understanding the brain, by building the world’s first biologically detailed digital reconstructions and simulations of the mouse brain.

Global Health Institute

Researchers at the Global Health Institute develop and apply new technologies to investigate human health and infectious diseases spanning from basic to translational sciences.
