Editorial - August 2019

ESC Working Group on Cellular Biology of the Heart

Chairperson editorial

Dear members

The ESC congress is the largest cardiovascular congress in the world. It is an important event for clinicians but also for basic scientists. The Working Group (WG) Cellular Biology of the Heart, one of the ESC WG specialized in basic science, uses this opportunity to enhance scientific interaction between basic scientists in the field of basic cardiovascular research and clinicians.

Our WG has helped organize basic scientific sessions focusing on atrial fibrillation (AF), cardiac regeneration and cardioprotection. A special highlight this year are the sessions focusing on non-coding RNAs regulating cardiac hypertrophy, molecular basis of HFpEF and mechanisms behind myocardial repair and regeneration. We also recommend to follow the session “Best of Cardiovascular Research” and to attend the Basic Science Poster Reception.

Our WG members have also helped to organize the 3rd edition of the ESC Professional Horizons (sessions of speed mentoring during the ESC Congress 2019), which will take place in the one-to-one area in the ESC Professional Member’s Lounge (Sunday 1 September 2019 afternoon break 15:40-16:40 - Monday 2 September 2019 afternoon break 15:40-16:40). This will be a unique opportunity to share our knowledge, advice and experience with the young community. This will give the young community a unique chance to boost their career.

We hope members and especially  our early career researchers will like these events and we can meet them during the Congress.

Prof. R Madonna, Chairperson
