The International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk is an independent, academic, multidisciplinary organization affiliated with Université Laval and located at Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec in Québec City, Canada. It is composed of two councils: an Executive Council and a Scientific Council.
The members of both councils have been chosen based on their expertise, their remarkable scientific contributions, and their status as world leaders in their discipline. The makeup of both councils exemplifies the multidisciplinarity the Chair has sought to achieve, with all members active in complementary areas of expertise. The Chair provides a forum for them to share their knowledge and expertise regarding diverse pathologies—some of which are new—but all of which lead inevitably to cardiovascular disease.
A key aspect of the Chair is its international and multidisciplinary character, with the following disciplines represented: cardiology, diabetology, lipidology, endocrinology and metabolism, obesity, nutrition, physical activity, and basic research.
