Our organization

Synapse founding mothers and fathers had the initial thougths more than a decade ago. Synapse is built upon the vision of bringing life science peers together to bridge the gap between industry and academia. 

Since the founding of Synapse in Copenhagen in 2014, we are now a nationwide organisation with activities in all major university cities: Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, and Odense. We are now putting efforts into creating a new website reflecting our nationwide presence (hubs), activities, and teams. In addition, we have also launched a Swedish branch and have plans to open more branches in other countries in the future.
