The ESC, formed in 1950, aims to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe and unites over 90,000 members. Besides their annual congress – the largest medical meeting in Europe – the ESC is at the forefront of education, policy formation and guideline development across all areas of cardiology. Previously, Prof Casadei has served as vice-president, leading on scientific affairs, research and clinical trials. We wish her every success in this appointment.
