Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Council of the International Society for Heart Research - European Section (ISHR-ES), is my great pleasure to invite you to our 37th Annual Meeting of the ISHR-ES in Porto, Portugal from 10th to 13th July 2023. This is shaping up to be an outstanding scientific event for our scientific community. We live in a time of great innovation in cardiovascular research, and the Organising Committee have put together a vibrant scientific programme. From epigenetic control of cardiomyocyte biology to cardiac regeneration, from cell reprogramming to vascular remodelling, we promise you four days of cutting edge science and networking, along with a stellar panel of speakers. The highlights of the programme include extensive early career investigator activities, poster sessions, social interactions, and a unique chance to connect with international colleagues. All of this in one of the most historic and fascinating cities in Europe.

See you soon in Porto for this exciting meeting!
