Neurocenter Research Indietro

The Neurocenter of Southern Switzerland (NSI) hosts the Services of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neuroanaesthesia as well as the Neuroscience Research Unit. The goal of the NSI is to confer the highest quality of treatment to the patient with the application and promotion of an inter- and multidisciplinary approach. It is an important priority for the NSI to ensure continuous excellence in care, the implementation of basic and clinical research, as well as educational duties.
Academic collaboration with local, national and international universities and hospitals including regular teaching activities at the level of the Master of Medicine at the University of Bern and Basel, as well as active participation in PhD programs in
neurosciences at the University of Bern, Basel and Zurich are contributing to the success of the NSI.
The main focus of scientific activities at the NSI currently relies on multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, movement disorders and stroke; even though, active research is also carried out in other fields of clinical neuroscience.
For clinical research, one of the two seats of the Clinical Trial Unit of the Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale (CTU-EOC) is located at the NSI. The Clinical Trial Unit supported the investigators of the NSI for investigator- initiated and sponsor-initiated studies and participated in several studies described below.
The pertaining projects in basic and clinical research carried out or still ongoing in 2017,
are summarised in the following sections.
