How is Bordeaux going to become the French, and probably international, centre of cardiology?
The first stone of the Institute of rhythmology and cardiac modelling, Liryc, has recently been laid on the site at Xavier-Arnozan Hospital.
This 45 million euro investment granted to the University of Bordeaux and the CHU is part of the “future investment” programme and will allow Bordeaux research projects to attract the best doctors and researchers in the field of cardiology.
The Institute of rhythmology and cardiac modelling will open in 2015 and will be home to 150 researchers specialised in the study and treatment of electrical malfunctions of the heart.
“This institute will, for the first time, combine in one location all the different scientific and technological/industrial skills”, explained Professor Michel Haïssaguerre, director of Liryc.
