On December 31, 2015, Prof. Dr. Felix Gutzwiller stepped down from the Board of Governors of Swiss TPH. He served on the board for 16 years, the past 12 years of which he acted as chairman. The directorate is deeply grateful for the fine commitment by Felix Gutzwiller during all these years, which also allowed fostering synergies with the Institute for Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Zurich.


As of January 1, 2016, Dr. Andreas Burckhardt is the new chairman of the Board of Governors of Swiss TPH. Of note, Andreas Burckhardt already served as vice-chair over the past two years, and hence, he is well acquainted with Swiss TPH and the specific tasks of the Board of Governors. The directorate and the institute at large warmly welcome Andreas Burckhardt.
