Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Bordeaux

Bordeaux University Hospital focuses on clinical studies linking fundamental research to the improvement of patient management. Prof. Haissaguerre’s team studies the disturbances of cardiac electrical conduction and excitability. They particularly work on mapping and catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation.

Contact: Professor Pierre

Professor Pierre JAÏS is a Professor at the Cardiology Hospital, Pessac, France, working with Michel Haissaguerre in the Rhythmology & Cardiac Stimulation Department. He co-manages the LIRYC Institute (Electrophysiology and Heart Modelling Institute) and the MUSIC EQUIPEX both aiming at improving knowledge and treatments of electrical dysfunctions of the heart, with extra focus on imaging for MUSIC.

He is a regular contributor to national and international symposia and has written many articles, mainly on electrophysiology and RF catheter ablation, particularly focusing on atrial arrhythmias.

He was awarded the Medtronic prize for the electrical treatment of atrial arrhythmias in 1997, the Nativelle prize for his work on left atrial flutters in 2001, and with his team at Pessac he was awarded the Prix Eloi Collery de l’Académie Nationale de Médecine in 2008 for his work on atrial arrhythmias, diagnosis and treatment by RF catheter. He received the “Best Paper Award for Clinical Science” by Circulation in 2009.  Finally, he was awarded the Lamonica Prize of the Académie des Sciences in 2011.

He is currently working on catheter ablation for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias with special focus on advanced imaging integration and modelling to guide ablation procedures.
