The HFA Winter Meeting on Translational Heart Failure Research has 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.
