Fondation Coeur & Recherche (the cardiovascular research foundation) was created in 2010 by the Société Française de Cardiologie. It contributes to the development of research in the field of cardiovascular diseases and plays an active part in improving the population’s health. Its construction and its scientific expertise make it the most effective player to recognise the best cardiovascular research projects.
With Friends of Fondation de France, donors can support the MICO – Heart and COVID-19 research project. The purpose of this research is to understand the role of micro-particles in the formation of clots during infection by COVID-19 and offer new personalised therapeutic approaches to patients affected. This clinical trial is led by Professor Olivier Morel, cardiologist at the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Strasbourg.
