EAS – The European Atherosclerosis Society
The European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) was founded in 1964 with the aim of “advancing and exchanging knowledge concerning the causes, natural history, treatment and prevention of atherosclerotic disease”. EAS contributes to the development of knowledge in the field with guidelines and Consensus position papers. By offering to their members access to educational events and materials, and opportunities to take part in Congress and courses, they provide a forum in which new developments can be discussed, and, ultimately, to the improved treatment of persons with cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders. In recent years the Society has made particular efforts to develop activities supporting young scientists. They collaborate with societies also from other related disciplines, and with national atherosclerosis societies, where they have common goals. The European Atherosclerosis Society’s goal hereby is to provide a framework for concerted scientific and clinical discussion of new developments in basic research, diagnosis and therapy of atherosclerosis.
The 87th EAS Congress
The 87th EAS Congress 2019 programme is both scientific and social, provides the international scientific community opportunities for high-level interdisciplinary exchange, as leaders in clinical and basic science come together from around the world to explore the latest top research into the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease. Attendees wil be inspired by the awardwinning Anitschkow Lecture, the outstanding Keynote lecture, by state-of-the-art Plenary sessions, and focused Workshops and Advanced Clinical Seminars.
EAS firmly believes that the personal meeting – presenting and discussing one’s work with others, and sparking ideas from others’ work – is the key to progress in science.
