Three CARIM cardiology researchers won awards at the EHRA conference in Vienna this week, where more than six thousand cardiologists came together. The conference, organised by the European Society of Cardiology, focused on electrophysiology and cardiac arrhythmias. At the conference, the Young Investigator Awards were given out to young researchers who conduct high quality research. PhD candidate and cardiologist in training Twan van Stipdonk won the first prize in the category ‘Clinical Science’.
