The Fondation Leducq

The mission of Fondation Leducq is to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular and neurovascular diseases. Recent developments in cardiovascular and neurovascular medicine have been impressive.  

New therapeutics, from technological and surgical interventions to innovative pharmaceuticals, have prevented the deaths and eased the suffering of many. Yet there is still much to be done.  

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 promoting the education of young researchers who thrive in an international context, we hope to be able to promote innovative research, an efficient use of research resources, and the development of long term collaborative relationships that will allow us to continue to meet the challenge of cardiovascular and neuro-vascular disease in the future.
