The joy of in-person camaraderie and collaboration was apparent in everyone’s faces during two days of PHRI-hosted meetings with our global family of research collaborators directly preceding the ESC Congress 2022 in Barcelona.
Before and after the meetings, there were hikes and dinners and fun all around – and, of course, much productive output from our collaboration, as always. Off to the ESC Congress!
