Miia L Lehtinen

I am a last-year cardiothoracic surgery trainee at Helsinki University Hospital, Finland. I obtained an MD degree from the University of Helsinki, where I also completed my PhD studies. I spent 2.5 years as a postdoc researcher at Karolinska Institute in Sweden studying cardiac progenitor cells. I also have publications in coronary artery disease, cardiothoracic surgery training, and cardiac imaging. I was an EACTS Council member in 2017-2020, the chairwoman of the EACTS Residents Committee in 2018-2020, and currently I am a member of the EACTS Women in Cardiothoracic Surgery Committee. I am an assistant editor in EJCTS and an association editor in MMCTS. I recently started as the chairwoman of the Global Thoracic Surgery Residents Association.

I am a consultant for Cardiac Surgery at the Medical University of Innsbruck with a clinical focus on heart failure surgery. I obtained a PhD in Molecular Cell Biology focusing on heart regeneration and the role of innate immunity in valve disease. I have done research fellowships in Taiwan and the USA and am currently leading a translational research group with the clear focus to find new treatment targets. Our pre-clinical research led to successful Phase II and III trials in heart failure patients. I have been the chair of the EACTS Residents Committee from 2020-2022 and currently am member of the EACTS Heart Failure Task Force. I am the course director of the EACTS Case Corner. I serve as associate editor in the EJCTS and ICVTS.
