Full programme available!

The full programme of the 3rd Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting is now available. We are very proud of the wide variety of topics we cover and the great national and international speakers we have recruited.

You can view the online programme, and click on the links there to see details of the sessions. If you prefer, you can download the full programme in PDF format. Obviously, we will update both versions should that prove necessary.

Fellowships 2019

The Fellowships give promising young researchers from the Netherlands the opportunity to work for up to one year in an international top quality academic centre anywhere in the world to gather skills or knowledge that can consequently be applied in a Dutch academic centre.

The Netherlands Heart Institute can facilitate up to 2 Fellowships of €45.000 each for one year.

You can apply for a shorter Fellowship in which case the amount is reduced proportionally. For example, for a 4 month Fellowship you can apply for up to €15.000. Read all the details here.

Second key note lecture confirmed

We are proud to announce that Barbara Casadei has accepted our invitation to give a key note lecture during the 3rd Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting.

Prof. Casadei is not only president of the European Society of Cardiology but also Cardiovascular Theme Leader at the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and Myocardial Theme Leader at Oxford BHF Centre of Excellence.

The provisional title of her lecture is “Fortune sides with those who dare”.

First key note lecture confirmed!

We have already confirmed the first key note lecture for the 3rd Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting: Profesor Roger Foo of the National University Heart Centre and Cardiovascular Research Institute of the National University of Singapore.

His recent publications include single cardiomyocyte RNA-seq as well as one of the early papers profiling circRNAs in the human heart.

We are proud to have Roger Foo as a key note lecturer.

Evaluation 2018

We have published the evaluation of the 2nd Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting. Main conclusions: scientific subsessions are more appreciated than plenary sessions, we need to create more opportunities for networking and the location (right next to the main railway station of the Netherlands) is great.

The future belongs to the young

In it’s meeting of 26 September 2018, the board of the Netherlands Heart Institute decided on the theme of the 3rd Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting: “The future belongs to the young”.

The meeting offers many opportunities for young people: the Einthoven Dissertation Prize, Fellowships, Poster Prizes, etc. The theme “The future belongs to the young”, therefore, seems an obvious choice.
