Our mission is to contribute to the progress and understanding of biomedical and allied sciences in relation to the cardiovascular system and the detection, prevention and treatment of disease, disability and malfunction of the cardiovascular system
You will join an interdisciplinary society and get free or reduced-price access to BSCR meetings, workshops, and symposiums, as well as eligibility to apply for our range of awards and travel bursaries.
The BSCR organises two meetings a year. These meetings adopt a symposium format over two days with specific themes, comprising state-of-the-art contributions by prominent researchers from the UK and abroad.
We publish a quarterly newsletter with short review articles, book reviews, meetings reports and laboratory profiles aiming to inform, educate and encourage collaborations between research groups.
Over the years, the BSCR has changed its emphasis, composition and interests. This ability to change, whilst still maintaining a regular programme of interesting meetings, has contributed greatly to its success.
We support and recognise outstanding early career investigators and distinguished lecturers through the Bernard and Joan Marshall awards. Find out more about eligibility criteria and how to apply here.
The BSCR committee is made of scientists and clinicians from around the UK specialised in cardiovascular disease studies. We join forces to deliver the best support to our members throghout the country.
