Equality of the heart
all still has to be done for the heart of women
« Danièle Hermann’s personal experiences quickly led
Fighting for cardiovascular health
to have a real heart for women’s cardiovascular health. »
Affected by a bacterial infection of the heart contracted at the age of 8, then by a pulmonary embolism, Danièle Hermann suffered from severe heart failure from a very early age.
As a young women, she underwent successful open-heart surgery performed by Professor Alain Carpentier.
Some time later, she needed to undergo a second open-heart procedure. However, all these trials didn’t succeed in dampening her enthusiasm, her drive and her inquiring mind. An extremely humorous person with a fighting spirit that was second-to-none, she was above all a person who loved life and as a result, decided to start a major campaign fighting for medical research in this field..
Shortly after her first heart procedure, she told Professor Carpentier of her intention to study medicine. In the end, she didn’t embark upon a medical career as such, but her experiences as a patient encouraged her to lead an unwavering campaign in favour of research into women’s cardiovascular health..
Driven by a desire to attract funding in order to promote such research,, he created the Fondation Recherche Cardio-vasculaire – Institut de France in 2001.
Campaigning for research into women’s cardiovascular health, putting to an end the ‘poor relation’ status of women’s cardiovascular health compared to men’s cardiovascular health in terms of research..
She passed away in November 2014.
Danièle Hermann – One heart’s journey
For the first time in France a top-level scientific advisory board has been established at the Académie des Sciences on the initiative of the Fondation Recherche Cardio-Vasculaire Institut de France (the French Foundation for Cardiovascular research), the first French foundation to campaign for innovative research specifically looking at women’s cardiac health – such research being practically non-existent at the moment.Objectif :
- Campaigning for research into women’s cardiovascular health, putting to an end the ‘poor relation’ status of women’s cardiovascular health compared to men’s cardiovascular health in terms of research.
- Drawing up the first research programs dedicated to the study of women’s cardiovascular health, thus continuing the fight first led by Danièle Hermann, the much-missed Founder and President of the Fondation Recherche Cardio- Vasculaire-Institut de France.
Up to now, more than 70 % of research was done on men or male animals, and its results were then transferred onto women, as if they were inexistent or if everybody would be a man..
