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
Area of expertise: Molecular and Translational Vascular Biology and MedicineDr. Konstantinos Stellos is a physician scientist at the Goethe University Hospital Frankfurt trained in vascular immunology, internal medicine and clinical cardiology at the University of Tubingen and Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. Currently, his laboratory focuses on the role of functional transcriptomics (RNA modifications) in the regulation of coding and non-coding RNAs in vascular inflammatory diseases and investigates the clinical value of novel biomarkers in cardiovascular risk stratification. He has won numerous research scholarships and awards including the Else Kröner Memorial Scholarship in 2013 by the Else Kröner-Fresenius Foundation and the American Heart Association Young Investigator Award of the Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology in 2015.
Area of expertise: Calcium signalling
After two years of postdoctoral research at the Karolinska Institute (Sweden) and following three years as a fellow of the National Institute for Medical and Health Research (France), Jérémy was recruited as a permanent researcher by the French national center for scientific research at Montpellier University. His contribution to the scientific community goes far beyond his research activities focused on calcium signalling, excitation-contraction coupling, and cardiac and skeletal muscle metabolism. He built up the national Young Investigator Group for Basic Cardiovascular Research with the aim to support scientific, educational, and advocacy activities of the French Society of Cardiology (GRRC/SFC).
Area of expertise: Subcellular calcium imagingSenka completed Biochemistry studies at the University of Novi Sad (Serbia), followed by a PhD in Molecular Medicine at the Medical University of Graz (Austria). She was granted the Austrian Science Fund Hertha Firnberg post-doctoral fellowship for exceptional young female scientists (2013-2016). The project is allocated to Oxford University (United Kingdom), the University of California Davis (United States of America) and the Medical University of Graz (Austria). Senka has experience in basic cardiovascular research in the field of myocardial remodeling in hypertrophy and heart failure with specific interest in subcellular ion homeostasis and excitation-transcription coupling.
Area of expertise: Cardiovascular development and regeneration
The success of Nicola’s research over the past ten years has already had a major impact in the field of cardiovascular medicine and culminated in two seminal Nature articles as lead author (2007 and 2011). Her work demonstrated the potential to reactivate the dormant adult epicardium to unleash a source of cardiac progenitors that can be stimulated from within the injured heart to contribute new cardiomyocytes to underpin cardiac regeneration and functional recovery. Nicola relocated to the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford (United Kingdom) in June 2012 and was recently awarded a British Heart Foundation Senior Basic Science Research Fellowship.
Area of expertise: Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology and Calcium Handling, Arrhythmias
Niels is professor of molecular pharmacology at the Institute of Pharmacology at the Georg-August University Göttingen. He graduated and received his MD from the University of Dresden in 2007. He worked as a postdoctoral scientist at the Institute of Pharmacology in Dresden, at the Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University and at the Institute of Pharmacology at the Duisburg-Essen University. In 2013, he obtained the specialization in Pharmacology and Toxicology. His field of interest is the regulation of ion channels and calcium signaling in the normal and diseased heart. He has received numerous research awards e.g. the Oskar-Lapp-Research Award (2015) from the German Cardiac Society and the Best of Basic Science Abstracts Award from the American Heart Association (2013).
Area of expertise: Ischemic heart disease and cardiovascularprotection
After her two-year post-doctoral fellowship at Mount-Sinai/New York, Gemma received a grant from the Spanish Science and Innovation Ministry to develop her scientific carreer at the Cardivoascular Research Center (ICCC-Barcelona). Currently she is a Ramon y Cajal Researcher. She has won numerous research awards including: Northwestern Cardiovascular Young Investigator's Forum of the American Heart Association, 2006; Young Investigation Award from the Spanish Society of Cardiology, 2007; Young Investigator Award of the European Society of Cardiology, 2009, and was granted an Oréal-UNESCO award for Women in Science in 2012. She has experience in translational research with focus on atherothrombosis, myocardial infarction/remodeling and cardioprotection.
