Registration is FREE and abstracts will be considered in the order in which they are received.

The target of research can be anything broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease, including heart disease, vascular disease, and stroke.  The range of disciplines appropriate for this event is wide-ranging and can include basic, translational, clinical, epidemiological, population, and bioengineering research.

Abstract submission is in electronic format only.  As an aid in preparing your abstract, we have developed Abstract Submission Guidelines which may prove helpful.

Please submit all abstracts via email at [email protected] no later than 11:59PM on January 26, 2023.

Abstracts submitted by the published deadline are reviewed by the Fellows Research Day Task Force.  You will be informed via email as to whether your abstract has been approved for presentation and the format in which you will present – either oral or poster.
