Creation of the Paternot Professorship for Interdisciplinary Cancer Research

Date de publication


It is with great pride that we announce the new professorship created in collaboration with EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne), which will be headed by Professor Nicolas Thomä.

The ISREC Foundation is donating 7.5 million CHF to the funding of this chair. Through this decisive donation we are able to contribute in a very tangible way to medical advances resulting from the research carried out by Prof. Thomä and his team.

Named in memory of Yves Paternot, the tireless patron and president of our Foundation (2005 to 2016) who passed away in 2016, this new professorship epitomizes our commitment to accelerating advances in the field of translational oncology. This substantial funding proudly perpetuates Yves Paternot’s vision, which has contributed to the ISREC’s impact far beyond cantonal borders and the Lake of Geneva region.
