Previous Annual Meeting on Myocardial Function

Add to calendar22/05/20080:00 24/05/20080:00 Europe/Paris Previous Annual Meeting on Myocardial Function true DD/MM/YYYY

"The influence of specific risk factors on myocardial function"

The meeting took place in the conference centre of the University Federico II, Villa Orlandi. The Conference centre is hosted in a seventeenth century villa on the island of Capri at a short distance from Anacapri. Restored with utmost attention to its architectural style.

An exciting scientific programme, with outstanding invited speakers, in a beautiful setting of wonderful island of Capri, allowed scientific exchanges in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
For the second time, a “How to” session was organised on the Sunday morning, that was specifically designed for young researchers. In 2007 in Cracow this session turned out to be a great success. Talks by Angela Clerk, Philipp Fisher and Thomas Thum  provided theoretical and practical information on some key experimental approaches in cardiovascular science.


This year’s main topics of the annual meeting of WG4 were:

  • Translational research on myocardial function Specific cardiac risk factors for myocardial dysfunction.

Don't Miss our next Annual Meeting - here are 3 good reasons:

  • Exciting scientific programme
  • Interesting talks on cutting-edge translational studies in cardiovascular science
  • Scientific exchanges with your peers in a relaxed atmosphere - see for your self!
