Professor Jean-Marie Annoni retires

Professor Jean-Marie Annoni, co-chief physician of the Neurology Unit at the Fribourg Hospital, retired on 31 August 2022. A specialist in the brain and the mechanisms of the nervous system, he has been involved in the national Brain Health Registry - Switzerland project since its inception. Through him, the Fribourg Hospital joined this partnership of seven other Memory and Research Centres from all language regions of Switzerland. He also took this project to the airwaves of Radio Télévision Suisse (interview with Prof. Jean-Marie Annoni, RTS, Journal de 12h30, 11 March 2022).
