Dr. Geneviève Derumeaux is a professor of cardiology and physiology at the University Paris-Est. She pioneered the assessment of the myocardial function using new techniques that have become part of the cardiac evaluation.
Premature aging is one of her areas of interest in the context of cardiometabolic disorders. She is now in a translational field, using echocardiography in aging to tackle problems related to the nature of the heart.
She views one of her career highlights as running her department, which integrates cardiologists, biologists, people working on cardiac disease and metabolic disorders. She and her team develops a translational program that aims to provide the groundwork for tackling major aging cardiac disease. As this goes beyond echocardiography and aging, it needs all the integration of all other departments and results in this innovative translational research program at the University Paris-Est.
