Abstracts: Themes & Tracks

The ISA2015 Scientific Program Committee invites the submission of abstracts on original work. Abstracts can be submitted for consideration for an oral, mini-oral or electronic poster presentation. All successful abstracts will be published in the Congress App on the tablet to be given to the Symposium delegates, and will be published on the ISA2015 website. Presenting authors must be registrants at the Symposium. All abstracts must be submitted online via the Symposium website using the online submission form.

ISA 2015 themes, tracks and your abstract

The four main tracks of ISA 2015. Abstract authors will be required to indicate which theme & track best matches the content of their abstract. Topics for ISA2015 will be divided into four major tracks:

  • Dyslipidemia; Lipids, Lipoproteins and Apolipoproteins
  • The Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis; Immunity, Inflammation, and the Endothelium
  • Epidemiology of CVD; The Risk Factor Concept
  • Primary & Secondary prevention of CVD; Lifestyle Measures and Pharmacological Intervention

More information on the tracks can be found on this page about the tracks. Tracks a and b are subdivided in: Basic Science, Translational Research and Clinical Studies.

Themes covered within the tracks. Within these aforementioned four tracks, the following themes will be covered:

  1. Basic Science
  2. Genetics
  3. Lipoprotein Metabolism
  4. Epidemiology of CVD
  5. Imaging of CVD
  6. Clinical Aspects of CVD
  7. Clinical Studies
  8. Intervention Studies
  9. Nutrition And Lifestyle
  10. Pharmacology of CVD
