The abstract submission process was very smooth. Presenting my research at the EACTS Annual Meeting allowed me to reach a large and diverse audience full of experts. Discussions during and after the presentation provided valuable insights and significantly benefited my future work and career. I highly encourage everyone to submit and present at the EACTS Annual Meeting.”
