Ok, got it
Our Working Group traditionally brings together basic scientist and clinicians with a various background, including molecular and developmental biologists, pathologists, morphologists, geneticists and cardiologists. The multidisciplinary structure represents the ideal way to approach cardiovascular diseases, either congenital or acquired.
Our goal is to attract young people to the research in the fields of cardiovascular development, anatomy and pathology, with particular attention on molecular and genetic developmental mechanisms. At the same time, we would promote the irreplaceable value of the clinic-pathologic correlation method, which is becoming even more important in the era of advanced clinical imaging and interventional procedures.
In this perspective, joint ventures for research projects, position papers and scientific meetings or symposia with other ESC working groups will be pursued. The well attended Cardiac Anatomy and Pathology Live Sessions at every annual congress of the ESC as well as at our WG meetings are the best attestation of the educational value of our activities.
Our main mission will be to continue to promote inside the ESC the basic cardiovascular research and education with a translational approach.
Topics: Anatomy of the developing heart, mechanisms of heart development, pathology of and molecular causes of congenital heart defects
