"The HFA Winter Research Meeting has been a long-standing tradition and has emerged as the best basic and translational heart failure meeting in Europe. The tradition started in 1983, initiated by Professor Dirk Brutsaert (founding president of the Heart Failure Association of the ESC, 2004–2008), the first official meeting was chaired by Sir James Whyte Black, who developed the first b-blockers and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1988.
The format is usually composed of formal lectures from the invited faculty, and poster presentations from selected abstracts, with interactions at lunch, dinners and free time. Being the participation reserved to active presenters only, this is a very interactive meeting with a lot of room for fruitful discussions, scientific bootcamps, and opportunities for new stimulating collaborations.
The presence of scientists with different scientific backgrounds makes this meeting a huge opportunity for brainstorming and thinking outside the box, with novel visions and concepts and therapeutic targets for HF being discussed with possibilities of translation into the clinical arena. Participants will hear the most novel scientific advancements on the topic of heart failure"
