Within the unit, the three teams, "Cardiovascular Genetics", "Cardiac Arrhythmias" and "Dyslipidemia and Lipotoxicity", combine their strengths and international collaborations to develop cutting-edge projects in the pathophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias and dyslipidemia. The GAINES - Genetic Architecture IN cardiovascular disEaSes - project aims to strengthen these collaborations but also to initiate new ones with partners whose expertise will complement our research projects in these areas:  
  •     Cardiac arrhythmias: New molecular markers to stratify sudden cardiac death.
  •     Familial dyslipidemia as a model for identifying protective factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
  •     Cross-referencing genetic findings in cases of intracranial aneurysm of European origin with Moya-Moya disease in Japan.
Beyond the ambitious research objectives, GAINES aims to promote the training of talented young students and the career development of young scientists in world-class research centers.

To implement these collaborations, the CNRS & INSERM grant a support of 75 000 € to the teams to finance missions and exchanges with Dutch, German and Japanese teams, complementing the VERACITIES funding from IRP NEXT.
