Published: 20 July 2021
Organised with scientific co-chairs Stefan Anker and Andrew Coats, this event includes presentations and panel discussions with a host of international thought-leaders.
The SGLT2 Updates 2021 conference SGLT2 Inhibition in Cardiorenal Disease: Translating Evidence into Clinical Practice covers the place of SGLT2 inhibitors in the newly released guidelines of the Heart Failure Association (HFA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) as well as their implementation in clinical practice.
In addition to plenary sessions and satellite symposia the conference featured a number of Meet The Expert breakout sessions discussing the implications in treatment of specific patient subgroups including patients with comorbidities. Audience questions were submitted throughout and were addressed by the panel experts.

Professor of Cardiology
Dr Stefan Anker was born in East Berlin, Germany in 1965 and has been a doctor for almost thirty years. In his own words, he “never considered doing anything other than medicine.” He is a prodigious researcher who has published over 950 original papers, reviews and editorials.
Dr Anker has also won a number of awards, including the 2018 Copernicus Prize from the German DFG and Polish FNP. Working with both systems in the United Kingdom and Germany has been enjoyable for him because he loves the freedom that it provides as an academic. He would like to play more tennis or golf if he had the time, and enjoys collecting sculptures; particularly anything “skinny or thin.”
