The HFA Winter Meeting, organized by the HFA of the ESC, is an exciting event for basic and translational researchers in the cardiovascular field. : www.escardio.org/HFwintermeeting.

The Call for Abstracts is now open deadline is 20 November!


We look forward to top quality research, presenters and abstracts. For young scientists, this event is an excellent opportunity to show their work, and to get to know their young colleagues and the senior scientists in the field. Could we please ask you to submit the best of the scientific work in your group or to pass on the word about submitting by circulating this email to your colleagues?
