PVD Mid-Career Award & Lecture

Sponsored by Council on Peripheral Vascular Disease

To qualify for this Vascular Discovery: From Genes to Medicine Scientific Sessions award you must meet the following deadlines:

  • February 1, 2024 – Deadline to have an active AHA membership with this Council.
  • New Deadline! February 8, 2024, 6 p.m. CT – Deadline to apply for awards requiring submission in the Council Awards Application System.

The PVD Mid-Career Award & Lecture allows for the opportunity to recognize an outstanding member of the PVD Council who is in the mid-career status of his/her institution. As an overlooked group of members, the PVD Mid-Career Award & Lecture would dedicate a specific amount of time for a member to present his/her late-breaking science in a well-deserved manner. The member’s science would be one that has advanced research and scientific knowledge in the PVD field.

  • Qualified candidates may include those above the fellow-in-training level or an assistant/associate professor who has not yet achieved full professor.
