      "The HFA Winter Meeting is the premier meeting for basic translational science in Europe, the excellence of which is recognised internationally. The organisers need to be congratulated on maintaining such uncompromising high standards over many years and for providing the young (and not-so-young) generation of scientists and clinician scientists with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the latest (unpublished) discoveries, participate to lively scholarly discussions, and network with the best scientists in the field. 
      There is no doubt in my mind that HFA Winter Meeting is amongst the very best initiatives fostered by the ESC family and a model for future developments." 
      Prof. Barbara Casadei, President-Elect of the ESC, 2016-2018
