Launch of Cardiovascular Research Onlife

The Cardiovascular Research editorial team and the Scientists of Tomorrow are proud to launch Cardiovascular Research Onlife, the online platform that will link Cardiovascular Research with the wider scientific community.

The initiative

This new initiative aims to stimulate exchange of knowledge between the basic cardiovascular science community, the clinical cardiologists and scientists in other, non-cardiovascular but relevant fields of science.

Cardiovascular Research Onlife will highlight new ideas and provide views on what’s going on in the cardiovascular field and outside, brought by the Scientists of Tomorrow together with the editorial team of Cardiovascular Research.

Clinical Scientific Work

Cardiovascular Research Onlife will feature clinical scientific work published in leading medical journals. The focus is on game-changing outcome clinical trials or large epidemiological studies in cardiovascular medicine. The aim is to facilitate transfer of knowledge from the clinic back to the basic science lab, improving the translational cycle in cardiovascular science. These major clinical studies will be critically discussed by a clinician scientist, who will extract and discuss the key messages important for the basic scientific community, and thereby highlight for the basic science community the most clinically relevant research challenges and directions.

New concepts

Cardiovascular Research Onlife will highlight new concepts and mechanistic insights from outside the field to stimulate basic cardiovascular research. It is a challenge in basic cardiovascular science to keep up to date on major discoveries happening in all other scientific disciplines, like biochemistry or physics, that may have a mid- or long-term impact for the cardiovascular field. The new platform aims to bridge this gap between disciplines by discussing recent discoveries published in major multidisciplinary journals. These commentaries will be written by young scientists, members of the Scientists of Tomorrow.

The platform

The young scientific community is inspired by successful leaders and colleagues. Cardiovascular Research Onlife will serve as a platform for the Scientists of Tomorrow to post interviews, written or in the form of podcasts, with inspirational leaders in science and society, both junior and more senior.

Cardiovascular Research Onlife will be a flexible platform to evolve in a way that will best serve the basic cardiovascular science community. Its ambition is to become the main platform for exchange of scientific knowledge between the basic cardiovascular science community, clinical practice and other scientific disciplines.
