The Scientific Council is the embodiment of the cooperative nature of the NLHI. The Council ensures a broad involvement of the cardiovascular field

Members of the Scientific Council of the NLHI – both clinicians and basic scientists – are selected for their expertise in cardiovascular scientific research by the heads of Dutch academic departments of cardiology.

The Council is an important platform to create awareness and recruit partners for new interuniversity studies. For example, but not limited to studies that include patients with rare diseases.
