Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering
The Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering is an independent, not for profit, organization that provides the resources, facilities and expertise required to transform creative neuroscience research into clinical solutions that will improve the lives of people with nervous system disorders.
Established by a generous donation from the Swiss entrepreneur and philanthropist Hansjörg Wyss, the Wyss Center presents a new model in translational neurotechnology research, offering competitively awarded support for projects that have the potential to make substantial clinical impact.
Through its resident experts, Campus Biotech technology platforms and financial resources the Wyss Center fosters creative new neurotechnology concepts and translates them into clinical solutions to treat nervous system disorders.
The Center creates prototype devices suitable for humans, and then supports their development from preclinical to initial human clinical trials that will lead to commercialization to allow widespread benefit.
