F2F meeting of ENDLESS consortium in Berlin

On Monday, we (Zouhair, Marlon and myself) travelled to Berlin to meet our colleagues from the ERA-CVD funded consortium ENDLESS

The travelling was very smooth, beautiful sunny weather and almost no traffic jam. 

We started the meeting with a delicious pre-meeting dinner at a restaurant close to the Gendarmenmarkt in the city center of Berlin - it was a very relaxed atmosphere.

Next morning the consortium meeting started at 9:00 and each partner group gave an update on progress and plans for the future. We all felt that, although the consortium is in its very first year, we achieved a lot. 

Overall, we had fantastic, inspiring scientific discussions. We all looking forward to meet next time in Paris!

On a more personal note, it is always great to come back to Berlin, a city where I lived for three years (1997-2000). And it is always particularly great to meet Vera Regitz-Zagrosek who introduced me to cardiogenetics more than 20 years ago.
