The 2024 Society for for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC), which concentrates on basic and translational vascular science, will take place from 7 a.m.–6 p.m. CDT on May 15, 2024, at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago. Researchers may submit abstracts from Oct. 25 through Jan. 10, 2024.
VRIC is held in the same place and in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s Vascular Discovery Scientific Sessions, set for May 15–18. Hopeful presenters may submit their abstracts for both meetings in one streamlined process.
Top-scoring VRIC abstracts submitted by trainees will be considered for the Vascular Research Initiatives Conference Trainee Award, which includes the opportunity for the authors to present their work at the conference.
The SVS Basic and Translational Research Committee organizes VRIC, which encourages thoughtful discussion among a variety of attendees, including trainees, vascular surgeon-scientists and other scientists with an interest in advancing vascular science and treatments. Highlights of the program includes abstract sessions, a scientific translational panel, poster presentations and the Alexander W. Clowes Distinguished Lecture, named for the late Clowes, an SVS member and a renowned surgeon-scientist and mentor.
More information will be published within the next few weeks.
