Event description

Description

Professor Lip, MD, is Price-Evans Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine, at the University of Liverpool, UK – and Director of the Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science at the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital. He is also Distinguished Professor at Aalborg University, Denmark; and Adjunct Professor, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea.
Half of his time is spent as a clinical cardiologist, including outpatient clinics (leading large atrial fibrillation and hypertension specialist services) and acute cardiology.
Professor Lip has had a major interest into the epidemiology of atrial fibrillation (AF), as well as the pathophysiology of thromboembolism in this arrhythmia. Furthermore, he has been researching stroke and bleeding risk factors, and improvements in clinical risk stratification. The CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores - for assessing stroke and bleeding risk, respectively – were first proposed and independently validated following his research, and are now incorporated into international guidelines. In 2014, Professor Lip was ranked by Expertscape as one of the world's leading experts in the understanding and treatment of AF.

Professor Lip will speak to the society about the latest research and advances in atrial fibrillation.
