Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries and its incidence are increasing steadily due to the progressive ageing of the population. The main theme of our research team is firmly in this major public health issue. Our main objective is to determine the molecular and pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases in order to develop new therapeutic strategies for these diseases. We address these issues through research on stem cells and the development of bio-inspired biomaterials.
