The Biolochanics project
Biolochanics is the name of a 5 years project which started in May 2015 and which has the ambitious objective of preventing aortic aneurysm from being a cause of mortality. Remember that the rupture of Aortic Aneurysms (AA) kills more than 30000 persons every year in Europe and the USA.
The project is led by Prof Stéphane Avril and gathers together a team of about 20 researchers involving permanent faculty, postdocs and PhD students.
It has the financial support of the European Research Council (ERC) which attributed a grant of 2 million euros to Prof Stéphane Avril in 2015 (ERC-2014-CoG BIOLOCHANICS).
