Wyss Center conference tour heads to Scandinavia for FENS Forum
Wyss Center conference stand is in Copenhagen exhibiting at the FENS Forum from July 2-6, 2016
The week-long conference in the capital of Denmark has more than 5,500 registered delegates and promises to be an engaging scientific experience among the world’s top neuroscientists.
Brain reprogramming and repair, neurodegenerative diseases, neuroenergetics and affective disorders are just some of the topics to be covered by the scientific programme, alongside lively networking and social events.
If you are going to be at FENS, don’t miss the Wyss Center stand at booth 107 in the exhibition hall.
Our anatomical model of a human brain, handmade from Swiss chocolate and crafted in our home city of Geneva, is up for grabs in the exhibition passport competition. Come and check it out and, if you can’t wait to win it, try one of our smaller Wyss Center chocolates as a taster.
We will also showcase some of our current neurotechnology projects and will screen our new short film that describes the Wyss Center’s vision for a brain computer interface to help people with paralysis through thought alone.
We hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it to the conference, follow our updates from the event on twitter @wysscenter#FENS2016.
