Health & Neuroscience

The Foundation’s life science projects deliver life-changing research and the transfer of knowledge amongst scientists around the world. By building partnerships with globally important scientific institutions, such as Harvard Medical School and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, our programmes set out to find solutions to today’s most pressing medical problems. By encouraging and fostering collaboration, the Bertarelli Foundation quickens the pace of research with the intention of bringing medical advances to patients, as quickly as possible.

Life science research is, in many ways, a natural area of focus for the Bertarelli Foundation because of the Bertarelli family’s connection with Serono, the pharmaceutical and biotech company they built over the course of three generations.
