The "2019 FRM Teams" call for projects of the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale “provides strong and sustained support to teams proposing an innovative research programme in biology with potential applications in health.”

Bertrand Cariou's team, Dyslipidemia and Lipotoxicity, only winner from Nantes among the 52 projects selected under the national call for projects FRM Team.
The INSTINCTIVE translational research program aims to identify new regulators of LDL cholesterol concentrations, a well-established cardiovascular risk factor, in order to develop new treatments for cardiovascular diseases

Led by Prof. Bertrand CARIOU, this research program, planned over 3 years, aims to identify new determinants of LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) in order to develop new efficient hypolipidemic drugs.

The strength of the INSTINCTIVE translational project is based on a combination of proven collaborations within the RHU CHOPIN research program and technological innovations.
