CU Romens: Vaud - Geneva Association

The “Association Vaud – Geneva”, bringing together the 2 university hospitals in the Leman Lake region (CHUV and HUG), signed the Convention establishing the “CU ROMENS” (University Centres in  Romandie Organization for Memory and NeuroScience)

The Leenaards Memory Centre (head Pr J-F. Demonet) at Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) , supported by the Leenaards Foundation, obtained in 2018, thanks to this support, the necessary funds to extend its “CLEMENS” informatics platform to the 3 regional memory centres in Vaud Canton as well as the Memory Centre (head Pr G. Frisoni) of Geneva University Hospital (“HUG”); this implementation of informatics resources is now effective; it makes it possible to triple the volume of individual dataset from patients who gave informed consent.

In this favorable context, the “Association Vaud – Geneva”, bringing together the 2 university hospitals in the Leman Lake region (CHUV and HUG), signed the Convention establishing the “CU ROMENS”, an overarching, University-supported organization in the French-speaking Switzerland, so-called “Romandie” (hence CU ROMENS that stands for University Centres in  Romandie Organization for Memory and NeuroScience). The vision for ROMENS is disseminating the CLEMENS concept to memory centres in the other French-speaking cantons, such as in Valais and Fribourg where preliminary steps are on going. CU ROMENS is headed for the next 2 years by Prof. J-F. Démonet. CU ROMENS will help to develop the harmonization of care and research in the field of cognitive pathologies in the elderly brain, such as Alzheimer's disease.
