Research at NSI Indietro

The Neurocenter of Southern Switzerland (NSI) hosts the Services of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neuroanesthesia 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. To ensure a continous excellence of care, the NSI carries out important activities such as the accomplishment 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.
In 2015, the first PhD title in neurosciences was obtained from the University of Bern by a collaborator working in our “Laboratory for Biomedical Neurosciences”.
The main focus of scientific activities at the NSI currently concerns 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.
