"The ACVC Research Prize was a unique opportunity to share my research and gain the recognition of a leading scientific community."
And the 3 finalists
Koen Ameloot (Leuven, Belgium) : The association between global hemodynamics, cerebral oxygenation and survival in post-cardiac arrest patients
"The dedicated ACVC research prize session was the perfect forum for me to promote our findings to the scientific community and to discuss our results with the expert."
Alberto Bouzas-Mosquera (A Coruna, Spain) : Impact oft he implementation of a sensitive troponin assay on the frequency of inducible myocardial ischemia and outcomes in patients referred to a chest pain unit
"I would like to express my gratitude for the extraordinary opportunity to present my work at the Acute Cardiac Care Congress 2014. It was a great honor and a privilege to be nominated for such a distinguished award, and after having learnt of the other finalists’ works, I feel even prouder to have been included among that outstanding group of researchers.
Attending the Acute Cardiac Care Congress 2014 was an exciting experience. In my opinion, it was the ideal setting to meet and exchange ideas with peers and colleagues, to get the most updated information, to discuss the newest innovations and to debate on controversial issues in the field of acute cardiac care. This experience has certainly motivated me to submit the results of my research at future editions of this congress, and I would strongly encourage all colleagues with interests in the field to join us next year in Vienna."
