Dear DZHK members,

On behalf of the DZHK Professors and the DZHK Board of Directors, we cordially invite you to join us in Königstein (Taunus) for the 6th DZHK retreat. Just before the leaves turn, we get together to share and discuss exciting advances and concepts in all areas of cardiovascular health and research developing within and beyond the DZHK. This year’s program is designed with integration in mind; integration between disciplines - from risk factors to vascular disease and heart failure, integration of new ideas and projects by the Young DZHK, integration between basic, translational and clinical research, and for the first time, exploring possibilities for integration between the DZHK and other German Health Centres (DZGs). 

Two outstanding leaders in the field will be sharing their insight and concepts with us as keynote speakers, Barbara Casadei, Oxford, and Elizabeth McNally from Northwestern University. Also, we are very delighted to have Wolfgang Dillmann from the University of California join us. Researchers and clinicians from the entire spectrum of careers in cardiovascular medicine will be present, providing a unique opportunity for training, exchange of ideas, forming new connections with topics and with colleagues to drive the next steps of our joint endeavour to accelerate translation of scientific discovery into patient benefit.
