2016 marked by the inauguration of the Liryc IHU

On 4 November 2016, the director, Michel Haïssaguerre and all the directors of the local institutions officially inaugurated the scientific masterpiece. In front of nearly 300 people, patients and industrialists spoke of their treatment by, and collaboration with, the Institute. The IHU has considerably increased the clinical research potential in cardiology and created a common dialectic between all those involved in the field. Since the genesis of the project in 2011, the Liryc IHU has chosen to specialize. 90% of global cardiac research concentrates on studying the heart’s pump and its blood vessels. In this context, the Bordeaux researchers have chosen to concentrate on the cardiac electrical system, convinced that studying its electrical harmony is fundamental to making progress in the field of cardiovascular pathologies and thus reducing associated mortality. “Liryc is an admirable illustration of the three words that characterize France’s Investissements d’avenir (Investments for the Future): excellence, innovation and cooperation.” (Louis Schweitzer, Commissioner-General for Investment.)
