Details host institution PARCC is born in 2009 from Université Paris Descartes and the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) 12 Research Units, It includes >250 researchers, running projects spanning basic molecular and cellular biology to integrated physiology and pathophysiology, biomarkers, genetics and epidemiology, with the goal of furthering the understanding of major cardiovascular disease, including atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart failure and sudden cardiac death, with a focus on translational research.
Technologies and equipment available and in use at the host institution PARCC team 7 ‘s vascular lab owns and uses virtually all non-invasive techniques for the study of vascular function and structure in humans: pulse wave velocity (by tonometry, oscillometry, ballistocardiography, photopletismography, laser-doppler vibrometry), large-, medium- and small-sized artery geometry and distensibility (standard ultrasound, radiofrequency, ultra-high frequency ultrasound, ultrafast ultrasound), endothelial function by flow-mediated dilation), atherosclerosis assessment (automated ultrasound image analysis, photoacustics), central hemodynamics. This group is often involved in development and validation of novel technologies for vascular aging assessment.
Brief description of a proposed research project The researcher will contribute to vascular measurements, data acquisition and management in the COVID-19 effects on ARTErial StIffness and vascular AgiNg (CARTESIAN) study. Fro more information: The CARTESIAN is an international study, launched by the Artery Society with the support of the COST Action VascAgeNet, which will follow-up COVID-19 survivors by using a number of non-invasive biomarkers of vascular aging, in order to gain knowledge about long-term consequences of COVID-19 and set up appropriate preventive strategies.
Preferred period to host STSMs Flexible arrangements can be made due to current pandemic situation
Preferred duration to host STSMs Does not matter
