ISH Awards & Prizes

The International Society of Hypertension (ISH) promotes and encourages the advancement of scientific research and knowledge and of its application in all aspects of hypertension and associated cardiovascular diseases. The Society offers a number of awards and lectureships at each Biennial Meeting.

A number of these awards are made possible by the specific and general support of our Corporate Members, emphasizing their shared vision for the advancement of knowledge and recognition of achievement. The Society is most grateful for this generous support.

Nominations are invited for awards to support basic, clinical and scientific research work into the causes, treatment and prevention of hypertension and associated cardiovascular diseases. In the spirit of the senior awards, as recognition of outstanding merit by their peers, it should be understood that individuals should neither nominate themselves nor lobby to be nominated. Further awards and prizes are presented based on high quality abstracts submitted for the Biennial Meeting.

Awards Committee

The Awards Committee assists with the selection of awards to individuals, groups or institutions honoured by the Society. This Committee is chaired by the President of the Society (or nominee) and has at least four other members of whom one is the Secretary of the Society. The Awards Committee will assess applications equally on their merits and eligibility.
