Born 1969, married, 3 children, Patrick Rossignol, MD, PhD, is a Nephrologist and Vascular medicine specialist, Professor of Therapeutics at the University of Lorraine, France. Since 2007, he has a position of deputy Director in Nancy University Hospital Inserm Clinical Investigation Center, which is headed by Professor Faiez Zannad, researcher in Inserm UMR_S1116, and is consultant in the University Hospital Heart Failure and Hypertension Unit (ESH excellence Centre) as well as in a hemodialysis clinics within a Disease Management program. He is mainly involved in clinical research, especially concerning circulating biomarkers, in the settings of heart failure, hypertension, hemodialysis and vascular diseases. He is also involved in translational basic research studies on the mechanisms of transition of hypertension and metabolic disorders to the cardiorenal syndrome. He has been participating in 4 EU FP programs: FP-6 (Ingenious HyperCare: from hypertension to Heart Failure) and FP-7 (MEDIA: Metabolic road to DIAstolic heart Failure), EU FP7 HOMAGE (Heart failure OMics in AGEing), FIBRO-TARGETS the 2 latter coordinated by F. Zannad (CIC Nancy, France) (2013-2018) and is an EURECA-m (cardiorenal working group of ERA-EDTA) member since its creation in 2009 and got elected as board member for 6 years in 2013. He is the PI of the largest academic CV outcome RCT in hemodialysis, led in close collaboration with F-CRIN (ALCHEMIST) and steering committee member of 4 international randomized clinical trials, including one led by EURECA-m. Since 2014, he is coordinating a French network of excellence endorsed by F-CRIN (French Clinical research Infrastructure Network, the French affiliate of ECRIN/ERIC: Cardiovascular and Renal Clinical Trialists (INI-CRCT). He is also scientific committee member of an epidemiological cohort of acute heart failure (>2500 pts recruited, French PHRC EPICAL2, PR in charge of the biobanking and of biomarker studies), and is organizing with Nancy CIC the 4th Visit of the Stanislas Cohort (4000 participants) (20-y) : >1000 pts recruited so far. He has published 85 peer review publications and is co-inventor of 5 biomarker international patents filed by Inserm Transfert in the cardiorenal syndrome setting, and co-funder of the SME CardioRenal diagnosticS.
