Access event page DD/MM/YYYY


Cardio Genomics 2021 is a virtual conference focusing on the promotion of genetic and genomic literacy amongst healthcare professionals. The aim is to promote greater awareness of genomic medicine in cardiology and consequently improve patient care through therapeutic innovation.

Course Director

Professor Perry Elliott, FESC

Chair of the Council on Cardiovascular Genomics, 2019-2022

Who should attend?

  • Healthcare practitioners involved in the care and study of patients and populations with cardiovascular disease
  • Trainees in cardiology
  • Geneticists and genetic trainees with an interest in familial cardiovascular disorders

Abstract presentation

The committee would like to thank all abstract submitters for their contribution to the original science programme.

Selected abstracts will be available via the event's platform (ePoster format) for viewing before, during and after the live event as ePoster.

Three highest-graded abstracts will be presented during the live event in a dedicated session and will be awarded a diploma and a copy of Inherited Cardiac Disease - Oxford Specialist Handbook in Cardiology.

Registration and connection to live event

We are pleased to offer this event for free. However, registration is mandatory.
