Liryc is a research, treatment, innovation and teaching institute, wholly dedicated to the study, diagnosis and treatment of cardiac electrical disorders, headed by Professor Michel Haissaguerre. These electrical disorders are responsible for various cardiovascular diseases and sudden deaths and cause, directly or indirectly, around one third of all deaths in the world.
At the international level, there are currently not enough research centers studying cardiac electrical activity. 90% of cardiac research centers focus on muscular contraction or mechanical or vascular functions. We are convinced that the study of this delicate electrical balance is fundamental in advancing cardiovascular pathology knowledge and in reducing the associated mortality.
With the ageing of the population, the consequences of cardiac electrical dysfunction are major, both medically in terms of treatment needs and economically for society and public health spending.
Understanding these complex pathologies requires a multidisciplinary approach. In regrouping a large number of national and international experts at the same center, the Liryc fully responds to these 21st century demands.
