The mission of Fondation Leducq is to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular and neurovascular disease.

The Fondation Leducq was created with the idea that the battle against cardiovascular and neurovascular disease should be waged at the international level.

By forging scientific alliances that transcend national borders, and educating young researchers who thrive in an international context, the fondation Leducq promotes innovation in cardiovascular and neurovascular research, allows researchers to benefit from an efficient use of resources, and develops long term collaborative relationships that will allow the foundation ultimately to change the way patients with cardiovascular and neurovascular disease are diagnosed and treated.
