EAS Governance:

Why you should become an EAS member?

EAS members form a global community of research scientists and healthcare professionals who share knowledge about the causes, natural history, treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis and related diseases. Working together we advance research, and improve management of these diseases in the clinic.

All EAS activities and initiatives are conceived, planned and carried out by our dedicated and enthusiastic members, who contribute their time, energy and expertise to the life of the Society. And, of course, the more active members we have, the more we can achieve.

So, why you should become an EAS member as well? The answer is quite simple. Check out the benefits here:

Beware: fraudsters pretending to be our society

Dear Members,

We regret to inform you that our organization is currently experiencing a wave of phishing attacks targeting our users. Many of you have received phishing e-mails from scammers pretending to be EAS President Kausik Ray asking for funds.

Please note that EAS, Kausik Ray, or any Executive Committee members or EAS Staff would not ask you for money this way.
