ATVB Special Recognition Awards

Presented annually at the AHA Scientific Sessions

The Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) established the Special Recognition Award in 1981 to recognize council members who have made significant contributions to the field and the council. The council merged in July 1997 and is now the Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology.

Two council members are recognized in each of the ATVB fields each year at the AHA's Scientific Sessions. The honorees are each presented with a plaque at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Reception.
