Due to the pandemic, the conference had been postponed twice since 2020. Still, the conference attracted 450 participants to Budapest, Hungary for 3 days of oral sessions, moderated posters and award presentations covering the entire spectrum of cutting-edge basic and translational cardiovascular research.
Professor Alessandro Cataliotti presented (on behalf of Gustavo) the abstract “ProANP31-67 ameliorates adverse cardiac remodeling and improves systolic and diastolic functions in a preclinical model of cardiorenal syndrome” in the moderated poster session 9 – Drugs.
Marie Haugsten Hansen presented the abstract “The effects of genetic ablation of CaMKII oxidation on early ischemia-reperfusion arrhythmias in langendorff-perfused hearts” in the moderated poster 2 award session, and Kristine Andreassen presented the abstract “Beneficial effects of exercise training on expression of fibrosis-related genes in a mouse model of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy” in the Semmelweis University moderated poster award session, for which she received 2nd place.
The FCVB conference also hosted social and networking events, including a beautiful river cruise on the Danube.
