On the 70th anniversary of the first European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress, over 30,000 participants gathered both in Barcelona and online from around the world to share and celebrate the latest developments in cardiovascular research at the first hybrid ESC Congress and first in-person ESC Congress since 2019. As the leading basic and translational journal of the ESC Journals family, the top-cited papers published in Cardiovascular Research in 2022 were presented during the “Best of the ESC journal family” session, alongside the European Heart Journal and EuroIntervention. Cardiovascular Research also hosted an Official Joint Session to explore new frontiers of discovery in cardiovascular research. This session featured presentations including novel targeting of ion channels by Dr Constanze Schmidt, vessel wall remodelling with novel ncRNA by Prof Andy Baker, and novel neuroimmune targets in cardiovascular disease by Prof Giuseppe Lembo.

Cardiovascular Research articles published during the ESC Congress included a Spotlight Review article written by the University of Glasgow School of Cardiovascular & Metabolic Health (SCMH)’s Prof Ninian Lang titled “Mechanisms shared between cancer, heart failure, and targeted anti-cancer therapies”, which will feature in Cardiovascular Research’s upcoming Spotlight Issue on Heart Failure, lead by Guest Editors Prof John McMurray, Prof Carolyn Lam, and Prof Thomas Thum.

Cardiovascular Research Editor-in-Chief Prof Tomasz Guzik also presented the 2022 winner of the ESC William Harvey Lecture in Basic Science, Prof Dr Christian Weber, and Cardiovascular Research’s Senior Advising Editor Goran Hansson was a recipient of the ESC’s highest award, the ESC Gold Medal.
