Leducq Foundation for Cardiovascular Research

Organization Overview


Fondation Leducq, based in Paris, France, is dedicated to improving human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular disease. With a Scientific Advisory Committee made up of leading medical experts from Europe and North America, the foundation has made collaborative research in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease the focus of its grant program, the Transatlantic Networks of Excellence. With this program the Leducq Foundation supports teams of scientists, comprised of European and North American investigators, who work together to solve some of the most difficult problems in cardiovascular research. It is hoped that through their joint efforts we will advance our knowledge of, and ability to treat, one of the leading causes of death and disability in the industrialized as well as the developing world.
