The Scientific Meeting on Cardiac Amyloidosis and Genetic Cardiomyopathies aims to increase clinical and research awareness on the burden of cardiac amyloidosis and rare genetic cardiomyopathies to Public Health. Cardiac amyloidosis remains an underdiagnosed condition and approximately 25% of patients are dying from the disease within two years after the diagnosis. However, today, there are impressive developments in the therapeutic field permitting the stabilization of the disease and even the complete cure.
We are confident that the Meeting will be a unique opportunity for exchanging ideas and networking in the field with eminent scientists from Greece and abroad.
The Meeting will take place at the B. & E. Goulandris Foundation – Museum in Athens on May 4th , 2023 and the workshop on May 3rd , 2023 at the Amphitheatre on the 1 st floor of Hippokration Hospital. It is organized by the 1 st Cardiology Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Unit of Inherited and Rare Cardiovascular Diseases, which has long tradition in the field, being the first historic Cardiomyopathies Unit in Greece with important clinical and research work. The Meeting is co-organized by the Greek Network for Precision Medicine in Cardiology.
We look forward to welcoming you
