Cardiovascular and Nutrition Research Centre (C2VN)

The C2VN joint research unit has a leading expertise in the field of cardiovascular pathologies (thrombosis, blood platelets, adenosine, endothelium pathophysiology).

In the field of nutrition, the research focuses on vascular risks associated with obesity and diabetes (ectopic fat imaging, effect of micronutrients, and in particular fat-soluble vitamins).

To support its studies, the C2VN follows a translational and experimental approach, with expertise in bio-banking and patient cohorts. The centre can also relay on cutting-edge platforms related to the targeted pathologies. It is involved in the coordination of national and international consortia.
