Plan to attend and submit an abstract for presentation at the 28th Annual Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC), presented by SVS, to be held April 30, 2014 in Toronto, Canada.
“VRIC is a high-level, really intense basic science session, a day dedicated to a single program,” said John Curci, MD, VRIC Course Director.
This allows those who investigate peripheral vascular disease and its treatments to meet in a small group setting prior to the American Heart Association’s ATVB Meeting.
VRIC also strives to encourage an interest in research among trainees who are aspiring academic vascular surgeons, showcasing young surgeon investigators. The SVS Foundation VRIC Travel Scholarship is awarded to selected trainee presenters.
The VRIC call for abstracts deadline is January 17, 2014.
Selected high-impact abstracts presented at the VRIC session may also be invited for presentation at the Vascular Annual Meeting, June 5-7, 2014, Boston.
Acceptance and presentation of an abstract at the VRIC session does not preclude additional poster presentation at ATVB. SVS registrants wishing to attend the ATVB meeting will receive a $100 ATVB discount on their registration fee.
