IAS Travel Grants for Early Career Clinician Researchers

You may present to a global audience and discuss your work with students and key opinion leaders. Dedicated sessions are scheduled for young scientists, such as the X-Change sessions, Rapid Fire Arenas and the I-Poster area.

The aim of the IAS travel grants for Early Career Clinician Researchers is to stimulate the participation of the most talented young international clinical researchers in the dynamic platform for clinical innovation in atherosclerosis offered at ISA2015.

Nomination and selection of awardees will be made on the basis of quality of the submitted abstract and a motivational letter.
