The Annual Norwegian Symposium on Heart Research is a national hub for cutting-edge cardiac research and an opportunity for young talented researchers to showcase their hard work and receive feedback.

At this year’s symposium, on August 31st and September 1st, more than 100 participants could learn from invited lecturers representing the impressive field of cardiovascular research in Norway.

The symposium is hosted by NORHEART in collaboration with ProCardio and the Department of Cardiology, Oslo University Hospital.

IEMR strongly contributed to this year’s event, with excellent short presentations from junior researchers that inspired plenty of discussion from both the panel and the audience. Congratulations to all prize winners from the Abstract Session, among them Chloe Rixon and Anna Bergan Dahl from IEMR.

The session “Challenges in exercise and arrhythmias” was chaired by Henrik Schirmer and Mathis K. Stokke. Stokke also gave the first talk of the session: “Exercise in arrhythmia syndromes – experiences from translational research”.
