This is a joint academic conference of ISMCS and the European Mechanical Circulatory Support Summit (EUMS for short). It is expected to bring together scientists, engineers, medical professionals and other professionals in the field to share knowledge with each other and discuss evidence, experiences, trends, ideas and visions for the future of mechanical circulatory support.
Dr. Chiahao Hsu, Director of Science and Innovation of magAssist, as the guest speaker, will give a presentation on "magAssist Update". She will share the research and development progress and achievements of magAssist to the international experts and let the world hear the voice of China.
ISMCS, formerly known as the International Society of Rotating Blood Pumps (ISRBP), was founded in 1992 and launched its first scientific congress in the same year, and officially changed its name to the International Society for Mechanical Circulatory Support(ISMCS) in 2016. ISMCS has successfully held 27 congresses in the United States, Germany, Italy, Australia, Singapore, Japan, etc. ISMCS has developed into a highly influential scientific conference in the field of international mechanical cycle assist.
With the mission of saving lives and improving life quality of patients,the ultimate goal of ISMCS is to provide cross-disciplinary scientific and clinical technical support and bring efficient and cost effective new solutions to the field of mechanical circulatory assistance. Through the annual meeting, ISMCS provides an international platform for in-depth discussions on theories, research and development, and clinical applications related to mechanical circulatory assistance.
ISMCS and China
At the 27th Annual Meeting of ISMCS held in Bologna, Italy in 2019, Dr. Polin Hsu, Distinguished Professor of Soochow University and Founder and CEO of magAssist, was invited to give a presentation on "From Silk Road to Artificial Heart". During the meeting, the committee was re-elected and Dr. Polin Hsu was elected as a member of the Society, being the first Chinese member of ISMCS in the past 30 years. At the same time, the committee decided to hold the ISMCS annual meeting in China in 2020. However, it is regrettable that the ISMCS conference was not held in China as scheduled due to the epidemic, but it is clear that international experts are positive about the Chinese experience and the desire to work together with China for common development.
About HEART HACKATHON
At the ISMCS, Monash Young Medical Innovators (hereinafter referred to as MYMI) officially launched a global competition for the design of artificial heart. The competition, led by Australian medical engineering expert Dr. Shaun Gregory and supported by ISMCS, is dedicated to innovation and heritage in the field of artificial heart practice. It is expected to provide an opportunity for young talent to demonstrate their research, design and manufacturing skills, as well as to bring innovative thinking to the existing field and to serve as a bridge between senior researchers and young talent. The competition will run for one year and will be presented at the 2023 ISMCS conference, where HEART HACKATHON will provide an international stage for students worldwide.
As a leading company in the field of heart failure in China, magAssist also attach great importance to the cultivation of high-end talents in the field and sustainable development of the industry. We look forward to seeing the outstanding achievements of our young talents and the spark of innovation with the new generation.
