Award Description

The Cardiovascular Section Research Recognition Awards are designed to encourage submission of abstracts to the Experimental Biology meetings from junior investigators (i.e., doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows) and are made possible, in part, by the generous support of Data Sciences International (DSI).

It is expected that awardees will attend the Experimental Biology meeting and present their research. Up to nine Research Recognition Awards will be made each year based upon those abstracts judged to be most meritorious. The awardee will be recognized at the Cardiovascular Section Banquet during the Experimental Biology meeting.
