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
Dr. Paul Leeson,
EuroPrevent 2011 proved an exciting forum for young investigators in the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research section to be seen in the spotlight.
The oral abstracts presented within the Young Investigator Award session covered a range of topics from the very clinical evaluation of echocardiographic and ECG characteristics in professional athletes and adolescents, through to the more basic science of how exercise training influences Murf-1 and Mafbx expression in skeletal muscle and how successive dives alter the vasculogenic potential of circulating cells. The overall winner of the Young Investigator Award was Dr Dao from the University of Dusseldorf who presented data on how exercise upregulates AT-2 receptor expression in-vivo via a NO-dependent mechanism.

In the moderated poster section several abstracts looked at ways to improve the prognostic accuracy of exercise testing for heart failure patients. Suggested additional markers included recovery indices, red cell distribution width, serum cortisol, serum adiponectin and blood pressure. The other posters provided a range of intriguing research observations including differences in how the hearts of women with type 2 diabetes respond to exercise and how Intralipid appears to lower circulating endothelial microparticle levels. The winner of the moderated poster session was Dr Kraenkel from the University of Zurich who presented her data on the role of kinin signalling in the leucocyte-endothelial interaction in coronary artery disease.
