In Memoriam: Hein Wellens

June 9 Hein Wellens passed away after a short but intense disease period. Hein was director of the Netherlands Heart Institute (ICIN) from 1993 2003 with Prof Klaas Bom. As we know Hein he was dedicated to bring academic research to the highest possible level, and the institute was a perfect tool to connect people, stimulate young talents and elevate the national scientific performance.

Hein was not only the central figure in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias, he had ideas about devices, coronary artery disease and heart failure. But most of all we will all remember him as The Teacher in Electrocardiography. His knowledge of the ECG was unique and his skill to reduce a complex problem to simple explanations was one of a kind. We owe gratitude to this dutch hero and pioneer in International Cardiology.  We wish his family the strength that is needed to move on without his presence. We will keep Hein in our brains and hearts. His legacy is overwhelming.
