In multidisciplinary sessions, basic and clinical themes regarding established achievements and emerging research directions will be addressed. The need for integration of knowledge finalized to better research and clinical outcome will be highlighted.

Our Summer School includes a theoretical and a practical part. Plenary lectures will represent the core of the Course. Hands-on- sessions and live demonstrations from diagnostic and pathophysiologic cardiovascular and pulmonary laboratories will provide an overview on various up-to-date techniques in the clinical research setting.
