Journée "Osez tous les métiers"

Journée "Osez tous les métiers"

The Dare All Trades Day is an initiative of the Bureau of Equality, which aims to break down barriers between gender roles and jobs. The purpose of this day is to encourage young people to explore new worlds of work and not just the traditionally female and male sectors. The girls accompany their father and the boys their mother in their work day.

The Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience belongs to the Department of Psychiatry, and is located within the Psychiatric Hospital Complex of Cery in Prilly (Lausanne).

Research activities at the CPN are focused on several psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, drug addiction, anxiety and Alzheimer's disease. They are aimed at basic neurobiological, neurochemical or cognitive processes with a view to developing early diagnosis as well as pharmacological and behavioral therapies. Furthermore, they are based on a translational approach, which promotes the analysis of neurobiological mechanisms and their vulnerability to the environment in the development of psychiatric disorders. Research activities are also focused on the genetically-based interindividual variability in the response to pharmacological treatments, with the aim to offer an individualized drug treatment.



The CNP also offers teachings and some other activities such as :
