DZHK Retreat 2020 is going digital

Due to the corona crisis, the Retreat 2020 will not be held as a face-to-face but as a digital event.

It will be our first digital conference. The programme will be shorter (Thursday, September 17th, from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm, and Friday, September 18th, from 1 pm to 5 pm), but exciting. The overall topic is “Inflammation in Cardiovascular Disease.”

Stay tuned for updates...

Preliminary program

The DZHK Retreat is the scientific annual conference of the DZHK, which takes place once a year at different locations across Germany. Around 250 DZHK scientists from partner sites and partner institutions come together for the retreat to discuss latest developments in cardiovascular medicine. In addition to topic-specific sessions, renowned keynote speakers from all over the world provide important insights for research. The event is accompanied by working group and committee meetings as well as a poster exhibition. The Young-DZHK will meet in the run-up to the event.
