With more 56,000 students, 3,100 researchers and teachers, and 2,600 staff members, the University of Bordeaux is one of the leading French public research and higher education institutions, located in a dynamic and culturally rich, fast-developing region. Ranked among the top universities in France, the University of Bordeaux is renowned for the quality of its academic courses and research. It is a multi-disciplinary, research-focused institution with a strong ambition to develop as a leading, international campus. The University of Bordeaux is leading an ambitious, competitive development program in partnership with local higher education institutes and national research organizations, in order to promote Bordeaux as a "Campus of Excellence".
The RHYTHM investigators from the University of Bordeaux are based within the Electrophysiology and Heart Modeling Institute (Liryc), a research, treatment, innovation and teaching institute, wholly dedicated to the study, diagnosis and treatment of cardiac electrical disorders, headed by Professor Michel Haissaguerre.
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).
Liryc gathers in a single site, a technological platform for experimental research, a technological platform for clinical research, an imaging platform and a computer sciences platform.
