OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Dear colleagues,We were informed of the untimely death of one of our prominent and loved members, Prof Dr Viviane Conraads, on Thursday 12/12/2013 at the age of only 50, after a long and painful struggle with cancer. Viviane was known to us all as an exceptional scientist, a dedicated supporter of the Association and an amiable person. She was head of the Heart Failure Clinic of the University Hospital of Antwerp, and responsible for cardiac rehabilitation and the heart transplant program. As a researcher, she had a very broad focus on different aspects of exercise training and testing in heart failure going from molecular mechanisms up to clinical application. She published more than 100 papers in this field and was appointed Senior Clinical Investigator by the Flemish Fund for Scientific Research (FWO). Over the last fifteen years, she played a very important role in the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation as a nucleus member of the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research section and as the EACPR representative in the Congress Programme Committee. Viviane was at her best as a teacher: she loved the interaction with medical students, cardiology assistants and she educated a whole generation of cardiac rehabilitation specialists at the University of Antwerp.The board of the EACPR wishes to honour Viviane Conraads by dedicating an Advanced Scientist Award to the memory of this distinguished member and good friend.
