ICAN Scientific Seminars

Sharing knowledge with our scientific and medical community is an integral part of the missions of the IHU ICAN. A better understanding of cardiometabolic diseases and the progress made in the treatment of these diseases makes it essential to disseminate this new expertise.

It is in this context that the IHU ICAN and the UMRS 1166 have set up monthly seminars in order to communicate and exchange with our community on the scientific and medical news of the IHU.
