ESC Working Group on Coronary Pathophysiology and Microcirculation



Dear Members of the Working Group on Coronary Pathophysiology and Microcirculation,

It is a pleasure to inform you that the second call for Mobility Travel Grant (MTG)  will be announced soon.  This year, two MTG  of 2,500€ each will be awarded to cover travel and accommodation costs of early career researchers or clinicians in cardiovascular sciences to work for a minimal period of 1 month in an institution of a different European Country.  If you could be interested in applying, please learn more on our WG webpage.

In February, our group has published an expert position paper onDepression and Coronary Heart Disease” in the European Heart Journal, highlighting key aspects in our current knowledge linking depression and CHD within the intersecting fields of neuroscience, cardiovascular physiology, and behavioural medicine. We hope you will enjoy reading it!

To generate session proposals of high scientific content for basic and translational science to be submitted for ESC, the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Science (CBCS) opens a "Pre-Scope" process every year. As a working group, we would like to submit the best possible session proposals to the CBCS in this Pre-Scope process and want to include a high variety of working group members. For this reason, we ask all of you to send us before the 30th April a brief biosketch, on a single page, with 5 key publications in the past 5 years, one or two titles of presentations that you would like to give during the ESC meeting, and any further ideas you would like to share with us. 

Best wishes,

Prof. Dirk J. Duncker, Chairperson

Dr. Teresa Padro, Secretary
