The TRAIN-HEART consortium, funded by the European Commission (2019-2023), is made up to train a league of 15 promising fellows that harness novel insights in the pathogenesis of ischemic heart failure, study the therapeutic potential of existing RNA therapeutics and improve its efficacy by the design of novel drug delivery systems.


TRAIN-HEART brings together leading academic teams and (biotech) companies covering various disciplines ranging from fundamental research to clinical pharmacology and gene therapy to drug delivery applications, have teamed up in the European Union.

Research Programme

The TRAIN-HEART network aims to gain viable insight in the pathogenesis of ischemic heart failure which will serve as a basis for drug discovery and drug delivery efforts that aim to therapeutically target specific molecules and mechanisms within cardiomyocytes for the treatment of ischemic heart failure.

ESC Congress 2020 - The Digital Experience (29 August - 01 September 2020)

Instead of being organized in Amsterdam, the ESC Congress will take place online. This cutting-edge, online event will be extraordinary. The ESC is creating a digital experience to disseminate the most exciting cardiovascular science in the most engaging formats possible – and featuring key opinion leaders from around the world.

A taste of what’s to come:

  • Dedicated COVID-19 track showcasing first-hand experience of top experts across the globe.
  • Late-Breaking Trial Sessions revealing the most anticipated clinical results.
  • Novel research presented in abstracts covering all areas of cardiovascular science.
  • Key opinion leaders explaining how new research impacts practice.
  • New ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines introduced and discussed by those who wrote them.
