ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Regenerative & Reparative Medicine



The 2019 ESC Congress was a great experience for the ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Regenerative and Reparative Medicine. Several sessions focused on the topic and interesting studies were presented. Of note, the announcement of Prof. Zimmermann that some tissue engineering solutions are about to start the clinical research phase in humans was especially important. In addition, several preclinical studies with exosomes and other cell-free products were presented. The expectations in the field are more realistic than few years ago, and the hard work of many researchers ensures a future clinical application of these advanced therapies.

During the Congress, the WG Nucleus celebrated a face-to-face meeting and all WG members had the chance to meet and interact with other Working Groups during the ESC WG Networking Reception.

In addition to the ESC Congress, the WG on Cardiovascular Regenerative and Reparative Medicine has organized two webinars focused on New concepts in cardiac regeneration with more than 400 participants. You can see those webinars on our education webpage.

Last but not least, please do not forget to send your abstracts to participate in the 2020 Frontiers in Cardiovascular Biomedicine conference. Deadline will be next October 25th.
