Abstract submission

Thank you for submitting your abstracts - we received a record number of abstracts!

Research was requested on the following topics:

  1. Signalling in hypertrophy and failure
  2. E.C Coupling
  3. Genetics
  4. Contractile function
  5. Cardiac Metabolism
  6. Cardiac regeneration and repair

All abstracts are presented as posters which are available for viewing throughout the entire meeting. A lively and highly interactive poster session takes place on Thursday evening between faculty and presenters. During this evening, judges discuss the Posters selected for the Young Investigator Poster Award. Moreover, certain topical abstracts could be integrated into the sessions and discussion over poster viewing plays a large part in the meeting.
