Board & Mentors

The members of the Scientific Board and the Faculty Mentors are ambassadors of Wyss Zurich. The Scientific Board is involved in the application process, where it evaluates the scientific excellence and technical feasibility of project proposals. Faculty Mentors are invited after their project is accepted at Wyss Zurich. They support their project in achieving its objectives to bring therapies to the clinic or develop technologies to market.
