1. A forward-looking scientific Programme to excite, inspire and inform!
The EAS 2016 Scientific Committee has created a programme featuring ground-breaking speakers in their respective fields. EAS 2016 Innsbruck welcomes this distinguished international faculty - including Nobel
Prize Laureate Professor Michael Brown, Texas, who will give a Keynote Lecture
– to share their forward-looking perspectives on the latest developments in basic research and clinical practice in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. You can find details of the Plenary and Workshop sessions now on the Congress website.
2. Share, Connect and Explore within our many Networking Opportunities!
EAS brings together clinicians and basic scientists across a range of disciplines, all from top-flight opinion leaders to those just starting their careers. The programme is created to give many opportunities, both formal and informal, for the personal, face-to-face discussions that spark scientific creativity, stimulate collaboration and can lead to new friendships.
New for EAS 2016 are Rapid-Fire sessions, and Guided Discussions of Poster presentations – further opportunities to exchange your ideas and discuss your work with the leaders in the field.
3. The Future of EAS – Young Investigators
The future of the atherosclerosis field depends on the next generation of investigators, and at EAS 2016 we wish to encourage the participation of young scientists and clinicians by offering dedicated opportunities for them to present their work - Young Investigator Oral Communication Sessions offer selected up-and-coming scientists the opportunity to deliver an oral presentation of their abstract.
As a measure of the Society's commitment to encourage the leading lights of the future, EAS offers Young Investigator Fellowships to selected abstract and oral communication presenters aged 35 or under, on a competitive basis. Young Investigator Fellowships for EAS 2016 Innsbruck include:
