Dr. Christine Rootwelt Norberg presented with the title: Disease progression rate is a strong predictor of venrticular arrhytmias in patients with cardiac laminopathy in a prospective cohort study.

Unfortunately, the congress had to be held online due to the pandemic, but the full scientific program was streamed in a live online format, with many opportunities to network and exchange with colleagues and presenters.
