EAS Congress

Present your work at EAS 2021, Helsinki, Finland

Even while we thank our EAS 2020 faculty and presenters for contributing to the scientific discussion at our recent virtual meeting, we are already looking forward to continuing the conversation at EAS 2021, in Helsinki, Finland (May 30-June 02). The programme for the Plenary sessions is available - we look forward to these presentations from our renowned international faculty, and we now invite clinicians and basic researchers studying atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to submit an abstract of their own research.

Abstracts selected for presentation may subsequently be published in the Society’s internationally recognised Atherosclerosis journal.

Each year EAS Congress enables delegates to exchange knowledge and forge new collaborations. Take the chance to share your work with scientists from all over the world in Helsinki - on the beautiful Baltic seacoast.

Abstract submission for EAS 2021 is open until January 12, 2021.
