In the june 2019 issue, discover our special feature called "The Heart. A Sensitive Organ". Inserm’s magazine illustrates discoveries, debates and issues from the ever-evolving field of biomedical research.
As World Heart Day–held on September 29–reminds us each year, the heart is a vital organ that must be preserved. Should one of its vessels become blocked or its beats deregulate, our entire health suffers… and that is if we do not die there and then! In March, an open letter signed by various Inserm researchers condemned the lack of support given to research into this organ. One that is crucial. Because despite the enormous progress already made, the heart remains under threat from a number of serious diseases… that research continues to combat.
