Stress research in Switzerland
One aim of our association is to raise public and political awareness for the importance of stress research. To this extend, we would like to show how stress research is conducted in Switzerland, what are the different fields of study and present important findings from our members. All in a way that anyone can understand!
The scientific research is essential to improve our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the stress response and identify treatments and prevention tools for stress-related disorders. An important part of research is communication with the public, in order to better understand their needs and to share the results. This communication is not always obvious, but our members are actively involved, either in the media or at public events.
