Our mission statement


The strength of Liryc is the breadth and depth of its scientific expertise, and its close association with internationally recognized clinical teams and information technology and modelling laboratories already based in Bordeaux.


Liryc is a medical and scientific multidisciplinary program dedicated to the understanding of cardiac electrical dysfunctions. It addresses the most prevalent arrhythmia and main risk factors for embolic stroke: atrial fibrillation (the most lethal cardiac rhythm disorder), ventricular fibrillation and electrical ventricular dyssynchrony (leading to heart failure). 

Develop & Innovate

With our multidisciplinary expertise and unique technology platforms, the teams at Liryc invent diagnostic tools, medical devices and future therapies.


Liryc aims to transfer knowledge gained in the understanding of cardiac arrhythmia to develop new technologies for clinicians to use in improving patient care. It also aims to capitalize on its technological and scientific infrastructure to answer clinical questions and to optimize the use of existing technologies.

Train & Transfer knowledge

Liryc’s mission is to disseminate knowledge gained from our research and to enable optimal patient care in the highest number of centers around the world. Using the Liryc’s infrastructure, our researchers deliver training for French and international doctors throughout the year, some of which are carried out in partnership with the medical device industry.


In addition to in-service training, Liryc is committed to University training in cardiac electrophysiology, engineering applied to cardiology, and cardiac imaging.


Over the last two decades, the doctors of Liryc have been trying to better understand arrhythmia mechanisms and the causes of cardiac mortality. They made major scientific progress in atrial and ventricular fibrillation, cardiac resynchronization, thrombosis and hémangioma. This has led to therapeutic applications being established across the world.


However, there are still many areas requiring work, in particular for screening diagnostic and prognostic tools and effective new treatments for these arrhythmia. This new institute, centered around electrical dysfunctions of the heart, brings together researchers, doctors, engineers and mathematicians   They contribute all their expertise in realizing this major achievement for public health.
