Competitive grants for young researchers, 2022

One of the aims of the Society is to ensure that research in the atherosclerosis field continues and thrives for years to come. To do this, we need to encourage talented young scientists in their careers in the atherosclerosis field, and for many years EAS have done this through various travel grant & fellowship schemes – and through scientific programmes dedicated to young investigators.

In 2022 EAS were able to go one step further, with funds available to support research projects of early-career EAS members, on a competitive basis. By a competitive application process we have selected the three grant recipients for 2022.

Congratulations to EAS grant recipients 2022!
