Xavier Jouven is a cardiologist, professor of Public Health who has focused his research on cardiovascular epidemiology.Xavier Jouven est cardiologue, professeur de santé publique qui a concentré ses recherches sur l'épidemiologie cardio-vasculaire.

The team works on the identification of new markers of cardiovascular diseases in general population and in high-risk populations, using national and international cohorts. 

Main axes of research:

  • Sudden death in adults: risk factors and prognosis of survivals
  • Biomarkers and cardiovascular diseases: added value in cardiovascular risk prediction
  • Kidney graft and cardiovascular prognosis
Furthermore, the Prof. Jouven has extended his clinical work in a humanitarian way by establishing an association of cardiologists to teach counterparts in Africa and Asia how to implant pacemakers and then see them go on to teach the techniques to their immediate colleagues.

Following this successful experience, XJ has set up a working group of cardiologists in developing countries. This, in turn, has aroused a secondary research interest in “newly neglected diseases” – the cardiac conditions that are no longer prevalent in the industrialised world but are still common, and often untreated, in developing countries.
