Communication & Events
BrainFair 2022 - Hirnverletzung
BrainFair 2022, 14 - 19 March: Brain Injury
A brain injury is a damage to the brain caused by an accident or illness. In the case of external violence, one speaks of a craniocerebral trauma or, in milder cases, of a concussion. But brain haemorrhages, strokes, tumours or other diseases can also damage the central nervous system.

This year's BrainFair will deal with this topic in detail in four discussion panels and on one afternoon with short lectures. In addition, visitors can experience for themselves in a very impressive way what it means to live with a brain injury. This is made possible in a self-experience tour organised by Fragile Swiss. The events are held in German.

As every year, we also run a school program on exciting topics. Researchers from the Centre for Neuroscience Zurich will give online presentations for young people on stress, pain, memory, chance to mention some of the 21 talks. Interested school classes can register on the website. We look forward to receiving many registrations!

You can find the detailed program on the following websites:

ZIHP Programm Frühlingssemester
Wissen-schaf(f)t Wissen, spring semester 2022 «Prevention against viruses, bacteria and co.»
The Zurich Center for Integrative Human Physiology (ZIHP) promotes the dialog between science and society.

Although Sars-COV-2 is still here, research is making new advances in the fight against other diseases every day. Our spring series is therefore dedicated to other epidemics such as malaria and HIV/AIDS, as well as cancer research. We give an insight into the latest state of research in these areas and answer the questions about which developments can still be expected considering the intensified focus on epidemics, virology and mRNA in the last two years.

The presentations are in German and take place on Mondays from 18:45 – 19:45. Due to the Corona situation, the series will be held online only. For more information, see our website.
