Section: Application Domains

Scientific context: the Liryc

Our fields of application are naturally: electrophysiology and cardiac physiopathology at the tissue scale on one side; medical and clinical cardiology on the other side.

The team's research project is part of the IHU Liryc project, initiated by Pr. M. Haissaguerre. It is concerned by the major issues of modern electrocardiology: atrial arrhythmias, sudden death due to ventricular fibrillation and heart failure related to ventricular dyssynchrony.

We aim at bringing applied mathematics and scientific computing closer to biomedical research applied to cardiac rhythmology and clinical cardiology. It aims at enhancing our fundamental knowledge of the normal and abnormal cardiac electrical activity, of the patterns of the electrocardiogram; and we will develop new simulation tools for training, biological and clinical applications.
