The BPH and its partners win the “France 2030 plan” call
for projects with the creation of a University Hospital Institute (UHI)
on vascular and cerebral health in Bordeaux
This is a resounding success for the BPH and its partners!
The Vascular Brain Health Institute (VBHI) Bordeaux project has just won the call for UHI 3 projects of the “France 2030” plan. The announcement was made on Tuesday, May 14 from the Institut Curie by President Emmanuel Macron in the presence of Health Minister François Braun.
The Vascular Brain Health Institute (VBHI) is a joint-venture between the University of Bordeaux (UB), Bordeaux University Hospital Center (CHU), the national institutes for medical and digital science research (INSERM, INRIA), and the New Aquitaine Region.
The VBHI project mission is to prevent stroke and dementia, two leading causes of death and disability worldwide, by taking a precision population health approach and leading an emerging global dynamic geared towards both innovation and inclusion.
The Institute is designed from inception to be embedded within a global network encompassing its partners in the Global South, esp. in Africa, to maximize scientific progress and to benefit the most underserved populations worldwide.
