What is it about?

David Conen is a Swiss national whose work in atrial fibrillation brought him into contact with the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) at McMaster University - a big Canadian research institute known for its excellent AF research. He later accepted an offer to move to Canada to work at the Institute under the direction of renown cardiologist Salim Yusuf.

Why is it important?
