Alongside my surgical training, I am pursuing a basic research Ph.D. in Molecular Biology focusing on ischemic cardiomyopathy and subsequent heart failure. This gives me the unique opportunity to perceive cardiovascular disease in a translational manner from bench to bedside. According to my perception, cardiac surgeons have the solitary opportunity to oversee all complex interrelationships in cardiovascular medicine. For me, the EACTS residents committee serves as a forum for a new generation and aspiring generation of future stakeholders who will shape the field of cardiothoracic surgery.
