The courses will provide an introduction to common cardiac diseases, including pathophysiology, clinical characteristics, and therapeutic strategies. An important aim of the courses is to integrate cutting edge research issues from the basic sciences, and to provide information regarding future diagnostic and treatment options. The courses will also introduce PhD students to issues important for a future career planning in clinical and academic cardiovascular medicine.
NORHEART will host thematic workshops and promote local seminars. The workshops will be thematically focused meetings, where researchers and clinicians meet to discuss ongoing projects presented by PhD students and early career scientists. Plenary discussions moderated by senior scientists will aim to improve projects and strengthen collaborations between researchers with common interests. Each workshop will include an opening state-of-the-art overview lecture given by an invited expert from abroad. The invited lecturer will also participate in the following discussions.
Events to be announced.
The Annual Symposium on Heart Research is a two-day conference gathering leading experts from basic and clinical research. State-of-the art lectures are mixed with presentations of ongoing projects and clinical trials. Abstract Sessions are a major part of the program. PhD students and early career scientists present their work to a panel of scientists with an opportunity for immediate feedback. The Annual Symposium is also an important opportunity for Norwegian scientists within cardiovascular research to meet in an informal atmosphere.
