Editorial - June 2021

Message from the Chairperson of the ESC Working Group on Myocardial Function



Dear Members,

With the increase in the vaccination campaign and warmer temperatures the COVID pandemic is fading away as in the same period last year. Nevertheless, we have been forced to cancel our traditional bi-annual WG meeting (co-organized with the WG on Cellular Biology of the Heart) that we had planned to schedule here in Naples May 6-May 8, 2021. Also, the HFA conference June 29-July will be held online. We hope to have a strong attendance to the FCVB conference in Budapest in Spring 2022, our WG will be involved.

Our members continue to be in touch through online meetings and organize web symposia and write new position papers.

Stay safe and best wishes for the Summer season for you and your families and friends!

On behalf of the Working Group nucleus,

Carlo Gabriele Tocchetti, Chairperson 2020-2022
