Dear members,

It is with immense sadness that I have to inform you of the sudden death on Sunday 28th of our colleague and dear friend Alexandre Dayer.

Alexandre Dayer was an active member of the SSBP committee since 2018. Alexandre Dayer was an outstanding scientist and skilled clinician. As a Director of the NCCR Synapsy since October 2016, he was himself a great model and mentor for transnational research in the field psychiatric neurosciences.

The loss of Alexandre Dayer leaves the scientific and clinical community with a tremendous void.

Our worm thoughts are with is family.

For the SSBP committee

Jean-Michel Aubry
