This innovative, upscalable building located on the site of Xavier Arnozan Hospital in Pessac was co-funded by the Aquitaine Regional Government and was delivered in stages starting in June 2015. A total surface area of nearly 6,000 m² will be dedicated to the study, diagnosis and treatment of electrophysiological disorders of the heart. This unique European platform will bring together some 150 researchers, for an exceptional concentration of world-class medical and scientific skills in cardiology, electrophysiology, medical imaging, image analysis and modeling. The construction of the building was launched in 2014, with the first stone being laid at the February ceremony, during which Manuel Tunon de Lara, President of the University of Bordeaux, recalled that Liryc "is a challenge that we have chosen to address together. The University of Bordeaux is a major innovation player and large-scale projects like the Liryc IHU enable us to play this role in our society".  The building is due to be delivered at the end of 2015.
