Thank you to all speakers, poster presenters and attendees at the 4th EU-CardioRNA COST Action meeting in Maastricht for making it such an interactive, productive and enjoyable event!

Thank you also to CARIM for the sponsorship. 

The Maastricht meeting played host to more than 85 guests from 33 different countries both in and outside Europe, including Estonia, Slovakia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Malta, Russia and Singapore. Two themes of the meeting were ‘Cardiac aging and associated comorbidities’ and ‘Novel alternative approaches to studying CVD’ and scientific sessions as well as roundtable discussions were tailored around these topics.

“Participating in the 4th MC and WG EU-CardioRNA meeting in Maastricht was an exciting experience and a great opportunity for networking and getting to know the most advanced techniques from top-tier scientists in the field. Presenting my poster at an international meeting and being able to share my proceedings is crucial for the advancement in my scientific career. To receive confirmation in the form of an award, means I am on the right path! I want to thank the organizers for this amazing opportunity and I am looking forward to the next CardioRNA meeting in Zagreb!” Fabiana Martino
