October 7, 2021 – INCardio public event on innovative therapies to fight cardiovascular diseases

How can you cure a broken heart? Although the expression often refers to emotional pain, we can also experience physical pain in the heart caused by Heart Failure, Vascular Dementia, Coronary Heart Disease, Heart Attack, or Atherosclerosis. Approximately 30% of the European population suffers from cardiovascular disease, with 40% of deaths in Italy and 45% in Austria related to these illnesses (Eurostat data, 2015).

To mark the first anniversary of the launch of the INCardio project, the project partners, led by the ICGEB Cardiovascular Biology laboratory in Trieste, are inviting scientists, researchers, and all those interested to learn more about current cardiovascular therapies to attend the INCardio Communication Event entitled “Curing a Broken Heart”.

The event, which will also launch the video dedicated to the INCardio project, will take place on October 7, 2021 at 2 pm, live at the Medical University of Innsbruck (Fritz-Pregl-Straße 3, 6020 Innsbruck) and online.The hybrid event will be hosted by Jakob Troppmair and Manuel Maglione of the Medical University of Innsbruck.
