On behalf of the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and the Finnish Atherosclerosis Society we invite you to the 89th EAS Congress in Helsinki, Finland.
During the meeting we will explore the latest developments in research into the causes of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease, and how these may affect the clinical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment. One of the features of EAS Congress is the high-level interdisciplinary exchange between clinicians and basic researchers. With many world-leading experts already confirmed, the EAS 2021 scientific programme will offer a bench-to-bedside overview of the latest current research in the field - including the award-winning Anitschkow Lecture, outstanding Keynote Lectures, state-of-the-art Plenary Sessions, and focused Workshops and Advance Clinical Seminars. We firmly believe that presenting and discussing one’s work with others and sparking ideas from others’ work is the key to progress in science. We encourage you to join us – to ask questions and share ideas during the Science at a Glance and Poster Sessions.
EAS supports young scientists in progressing their careers through Young Investigator Fellowships. This important initiative offers early-career scientists the opportunity to take part in the Congress, to learn through presenting their own research, attending the scientific programme, and getting to know others in the field. Information about Fellowships can be found on the Society website, and we welcome abstract submissions from young scientists.
We are extremely happy to invite you to attend the EAS 2021 Congress on May 30-June 2, 2021. We welcome clinicians and basic researchers studying atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to present their findings to the international scientific community. You are sure to gain new friends, new ideas, and inspiration to take your studies of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to new levels!
Abstract submission deadline: January 12, 2021.
The BSH Annual Meeting will cover the latest scientific research, data and the best clinical practice in heart failure care. The conference will be taking place virtually using cutting edge technology bringing you multimedia content from a specialist, internationally renowned faculty. This event will cover core areas of interest to all health professionals responsible for the care of heart failure patients.

Joint BCS/BAS/BSCR Young Investigator Prize
Deadlines to be announced shortly
Combined BCS/BAS/BSCR with the top 5 applications being selected for oral presentation on Tuesday lunchtime with a first prize of £1,000. Open to basic scientists who are no more than 5 years post-PhD and clinicians who have not attained consultant status. Application requires submission of a brief communication (1,000 words with up to 5 tables/figures). Please note that if your submission for the Young Investigator Prize is not shortlisted for presentation, it is not automatically entered as a standard poster abstract submission. To do this you will need to separately submit your abstract following the normal submission process and you are encouraged to do this – if your application for the Young Investigator Prize is subsequently shortlisted then you will have the option of withdrawing your standard poster abstract.

As in previous years, the BSCR is delighted to have been selected to organise a themed session at Pharmacology 2019.
Endothelial dysfunction is an early predictor of vascular disease and associated risk factors and co-morbidities, including hypertension, diabetes, dementia and aging. It is hallmarked by an imbalance in the release of mediators, due to a number of mechanisms including oxidative stress and elevated levels of reactive oxygen species. There is a drive for the early detection of endothelial dysfunction to enable targeted delivery of novel therapies that will prevent or slow disease progression. This symposium will discuss efforts to identify novel targets and emerging pharmacological intervention strategies, towards treatment and the restoration of vascular health and function
