2nd Olympiad in Cardiovascular Medicine Symposium on Experimental and Clinical Cardiovascular Medicine

We are delighted to invite you and/or your trainees to submit an abstract and attend, in-person, the 2nd Olympiad in Cardiovascular Medicine Symposium on Experimental and Clinical Cardiovascular Medicine at the Galaxy Hotel Heraklion in Crete, Greece on April 27-30, 2022.

This international scientific symposium held every 4 years brings together top-tier cardiology research scientists and clinicians from around the world to Greece. The 1st Olympiad in 2018 was tremendously successful and hosted more than 80 chairs and speakers and was attended by approximately 150 top-tier research scientists and clinicians. We are confident that our 2nd conference next year will be even better with almost 200 speakers and chairs.  The scientific program includes talks that cover a spectrum of fundamental and translational topics related to cardiac function and disease, including sessions on clinical therapeutic approaches, as well as on systems biology, epigenetics, heart failure, immunology, aging, and metabolism given by experts in top clinical and basic science centers from around the world including editors of the largest Cardiology and Cardiovascular research journals.

We look forward to meeting with you in person in Greece on April 27-30, 2022!
