Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The joint meeting of Working Groups on Myocardial Function and Cellular Biology of the Heart has became a traditional meeting presenting the cutting-edge of scientific outcomes in dedicated fields.
It offers the opportunity to network and allows scientific exchanges in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, between early career researchers and outstanding international speakers.
Salvage Pathways in Heart Rejuvenation
With the support of the Heart Failure Association of the ESC,
Astra Zeneca , Sanofi, VisualSonic and the Company of Biologists
On parallel, it offers the opportunity to network and allows scientific exchanges in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.Early career researchers and outstanding international speakers will share scientific topics in the wonderful setting of the Villa Monastero, bording the Lago di Como in Varenna.
