The kick-off of the MY-ATRIA project
takes place at Politecnico di Milano on November 20th and 21st, 2017
with the participation of several European partners. MY-ATRIA
is a European H2020 Marie Curie ITN action
led by Politecnico di Milano and coordinated by DEIB professor Luca Mainardi
brings together universities, companies and hospitals from 5 European countries (Italy, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands and Germany). The main scope of MY-ATRIA
is to establish a multidisciplinary network able to develop research and training “without walls” among academic, industrial and clinical entities in cardiac, atrial disease. MY-ATRIA
will contribute in:
- Educational concepts through a new, intersectoral paradigm of PhD training to shape a modern professional Researcher with cross-competencies.
- Basic science by gaining new knowledge about atrial functioning, atrial arrhythmias development and response to treatment, using multi-sectoral, model-based integrative approach to explore electrical, contractile, and structural remodeling of the atrial myocardium.
- Technology solutions by developing new methodologies and technologies for the early detection of atrial arrhythmias, its monitoring, progression and risk stratification.
