“The 26th Annual Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC) is designed to encourage interaction between vascular surgeon investigators and scientists from other vascular biology – related disciplines,” said conference organizer, Alan Dardik, MD, PhD.
“This meeting is the premier venue for both senior and junior level vascular surgeon-scientists,” said Dr. Dardik. “Vascular surgeon-scientists will value the opportunity to interact with their vascular biology colleagues both scientifically and socially. Junior vascular surgeon-scientists can present their work among the cutting edge research of our specialty. Everyone is invited to attend and hear the newest advances in vascular biology that will predict the future of vascular surgery.”
The April 17, 2012 SVS conference will feature basic science and early translational research. It precedes the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology (ATVB) meeting scheduled for April 18-20, 2012 in Chicago.
Basic science and early translational research under consideration for presentation at VRIC will also be evaluated for ATVB. The two program committees will coordinate scheduling of accepted abstracts into appropriate sessions at VRIC and /or ATVB. Acceptance and presentation of an abstract at the VRIC session does not preclude additional poster presentation at the ATVB sessions.Principal investigators of selected, high-impact abstracts presented at the VRIC session may also be invited for presentation at the SVS 2012 Vascular Annual Meeting, June 7-9, 2012.
