LAUSANNE: A REPUTATION FOR OUTSTANDING EDUCATION
Lausanne is home to two of the world’s leading universities, which conduct cutting-edge life sciences research.
The city’s École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), which specialises in natural sciences and engineering, is ranked as one of the top universities in the world.
The Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) is recognised as one of the world’s top 10 university hospitals. It collaborates with the World Health Organisation on vital global public health projects, carrying out trials into the Ebola vaccine, for example.
Agora, ISREC and the Ludwig Cancer Research centre are pioneering work in oncology, immunology and personalised medicine.
