Mannheimer lecture

The Mannheimer lecture was established in the honour of Edgar Mannheimer, born in 1904 in Gothenburg, Sweden, for his pioneer work in paediatric cardiology.

The Mannheimer Lecture is usually a lecture of great breadth on an important scientific or historical topic in the field.

The Mannheimer lecturer will receive the traditional horseshoe - a Scandinavian emblem of luck and prosperity - as recognition. The first plaque with the horseshoe was given out during the AEPC 1966 Helsinki meeting by Professor Bernhard Landtman to Dr Richard Bonham (Great Ormond Street Hospital, London).
