Research Unit on Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases

Situated in downtown Paris, in Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital, the research unit UMRS 1166-ICAN is located in Pierre and Marie Curie School of Medicine. Established in 2014 our lab was renewed in 2019 for a 5 new year period, under Inserm and Sorbonne Université tutorships.

It brings together 5 internationally recognized research teams with complementary interests and approaches in genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular and cellular biology, physiology and pharmacology to bear upon cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

As the primary cause of death in developed countries, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases share pathophysiological characteristics as diet, lifestyle, environment, genetic and epigenetic factors that contribute to disease progression, and are also their initial cause. Therefore interactions between basic and clinical research are critical in understanding them.

ICAN unit research teams are members of the Institute of Cardiometabolism and Nutrition IHU ICAN.
