Poster abstract sessions - the top 10 abstracts will be selected for presentation as moderated posters on Monday afternoon whilst other accepted abstracts will be presented and judged on Tuesday afternoon
Combined BCS/BAS/BSCR competition 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
The BSCR will consider awarding travel grants of up to £200 to bona fide students who are BSCR members and are presenting an abstract at the meeting.
Open soon and free for BSCR members who should ensure that they register using the “BAS/BSCR Joint Meeting” tab.
The conference dinner will be held on Monday evening (venue to be confirmed), with a reduced rate for student delegates.
Will be available for booking as part of the registration process.

We are delighted to announce the 14th international symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease, which will be held in London, UK, on April 11-12 2019.
Over the years, the symposium was successful in bridging the gap between biomechanics, vascular biology and clinical research.
This year, the scientific program of the symposium will not only cover aspects of vascular biology and clinical research related to biomechanics, but will be structured around Controversies in Science. Scientific discussions are the best way to generate new ideas, and we would like to focus on this aspect more strongly. To meet our goal, each session will bring together at least two internationally renowned scientists, each with controversial ideas around the topic. The oral sessions will be complemented with a selection from submitted abstracts. Furthermore, a poster session will be organised and there will be a Young Investigators Award.
We hope to welcome you to London in 2019 for an inspiring 14th symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease.
Please do put the dates in your diary and come to London:
The Summer School on Basic Cardiovascular Science will be held from 16-20 June 2019 at the European Heart House in Sophia Antipolis, France.
You can find the programme and the objectives of the course announced here.
Pre-inscriptions will be open from 14 January - 11 February 2019.
The Irish Association of Pharmacologists annual meeting will take place this year on Friday 30 November at the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine (http://www.qub.ac.uk/research-centres/wwiem/). This is a large purpose-built centre for research located on the Queen’s University campus at the Belfast City Hospital site, opened for use in 2015. WWIEM sits adjacent to the Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology and, as such, the venue is right in the hub of health sciences research in Belfast.
The purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for presentation of state-of-the-art lectures in areas considered of great relevance to healthcare. Join us for a fantastic programme. Highlights will include keynote presentations from:
Delegates can enjoy these talks and also abstract presentations, plus networking opportunities. There are prizes available for early career researchers giving oral or poster presentations.
Details of the programme are available here (http://www.pharmacology.ie).
