François Briand, Director of Research and Business Development at Physiogenex, will be giving a talk during the HFpEF Drug Discovery & Development Summit 2022, a digital event, on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 18:30 CET time / 12.30 EST time / 9:30 PT time.

The HFpEF Drug Discovery & Development Summit is the first industry specific forum exclusively focused on drug discovery and translation in HFpEF, and its relationship with subpopulations with metabolic syndromes and co-morbidities.
This presentation will be dedicated to Novel Animal Models of HFpEF with Metabolic Comorbidities for Translational Drug Efficacy Studies.

In this presentation, François Briand will:
-Discuss the limitations of high fat diet-induced obese mouse and rat models for HFpEF

-Describe the Spontaneously Diabetic Torii (SDT) fatty rat and the LundMetS rat models to target HFpEF in the context of diabetic nephropathy and NASH

-Present the free-choice diet-induced obese NASH hamster, a preclinical model with severe diastolic dysfunction and restrictive profile
