Research Group - Dr Yvan Devaux

Activities

Dr Yvan Devaux is head of the Cardiovascular Research Unit at LIH. 

Using a thoroughly validated experimental pipeline including both discovery and validation phases, Yvan and his group aim to identify novel biomarkers of acute cardiac conditions such as acute myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, heart failure, aortic stenosis and stroke. His research group focuses on RNAs and particularly non-coding RNAs such as microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs.

He founded and coordinates the Cardiolinc network, a consortium of 7 private partners and more than 49 research groups worldwide investigating the role of long non-coding RNAs in cardiac disease.

Research projects

The group has several ongoing research projects, which include :

  • Identification of microRNAs predictive of outcome after cardiac arrest, acute myocardial infarction, aortic dissection and stroke
  • Development of a diagnostic microRNA-based assay to predict outcome after acute myocardial infarction

  • Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg
  • Institut National de Chirurgie Cardiaque et de Cardiologie Interventionelle
  • Institute of Molecular and Translational Therapeutic Strategies (IMTTS), Hannover Medical School
