EAS Competitive grants for young researchers
This year the EAS gave out 3 individuals grants for research projects and 13 grants for National Society educational projects in line with EAS aims: Share knowledge about the causes, natural history, treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis and related diseases. Working together we advance research in the field, and improve management of these diseases in the clinic.
“We are truly grateful for the contribution of the members of the Working Groups appointed by the Executive Committee, who have created, planned and implemented these activities for the benefit of the future of EAS and the development of the field.“
