Last week Jessica Webb, a clinical fellow at KCL, attended EuroCMR 2016 - the 14th EACVI annual conference on CMR. As the largest and most important CMR meeting in Europe, this was a great opportunity to share work from the VP2HF project as well as gaining important insight into the current clinical applications of CMR. Jessica kept herself busy and presented two posters - a great way to increase exposure of the VP2HF project in the clinical community. 


Tom Jackson attended Heart Rhythm Society's 37th Annual Scientific Sessions in San Francisco, presenting VP2HF results in the dedicated poster session. http://www.hrssessions.org/ 



Dr Lauren Fovargue, a Postdoctoral Researcher at KCL, recently took part in the Science Museum's Lates event in London as a scientific expert for the exhibition, 'How to Mend a Broken Heart'. This was an interactive event for adults and was a great opportunity to share the outcomes of the VP2HF project with the public.

Attendees from all VP2HF partners travelled to London for the two day VP2HF Development Workshop which took place at KCL on 3rd - 4th March. The meeting was a great opportunity to discuss progress and the exciting plans for the final months of the project. 


Sergio Sánchez, from UPF, presented two posters at the EuroEcho 2015 conference. The first, "Can machine learning help to identify heart failure with preserved ejection fraction?", was presented in the first Tissue Doppler and speckle tracking session; and the second, "Quantifying the contribution of stress echocardiography to the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction", was presented later in the conference.


Kristin Töndel was invited to speak at a student seminar at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Oslo, Norway to promote the study of computational sciences
