Fondation Leducq is a French non-profit health research foundation, the mission of which is to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular and neurovascular disease.

The principal aim of this program is to foster outstanding and innovative scientific research by bringing together international teams of researchers with complementary expertise and resources to work together on a common thematic problem.

The proposals should aim to generate new knowledge with the potential to advance the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular and neurovascular disease.

Early career investigators play a vital role in these networks, which provide an excellent context for training and career development in cardiovascular and neurovascular research.

Each network is built around a transatlantic research alliance involving two network coordinators, the European Coordinator and the North American Coordinator.


Participants in a Fondation Leducq Transatlantic Network of Excellence Program must have expertise in cardiovascular, neurovascular disease, or a related field, and must be affiliated with an academic research center.
