Research performed in Inserm U1096 Unit in Rouen, concerns evaluation of the mechanisms behind and novel treatments of cardiovascular diseases, focusing on vascular protection and improvement of cardiac contractile function. This research is transversal, and performed both in experimental models and in human.
Our work mostly concerns the protection of vascular endothelial cells in the context of cardiovascular risk factors or cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, diabetes, myocardial infarction, heart failure etc. ). We also investigate new biotherapy approaches for stimulation of cardiac angiogenesis and vasculogenesis.
Development and assessment of new treatments of heart failure, as well as the clinical evaluation of percutaneous aortic valve replacement.
