ISH Mid-Career Award for Women Researchers
The ISH Women in Hypertension Research Committee established this award in 2018 to recognise, encourage and inspire women in science and medicine in the field of hypertension and related cardiovascular diseases.
This award will be given at the ISH Biennial Scientific Meeting to recognise a woman researcher who is in a mid-career position, 35-45 years of age or 10 full years after postgraduate qualifications.
The nomination should include full curriculum vitae, a description of how their research in hypertension has advanced knowledge or impacted others (<500 words), no more than 5 publications, which the nominee considers as important publications and a letter of support from the nominee’s mentor.
The Award must be collected in person at the ISH Biennial Scientific Meeting.
Must be a member of the ISH. Nominations for previous winners of any other ISH award are not normally received, but might be considered if there is an outstanding independent case for this award.
Members of the Council of the ISH, ISH Awards Committee and ISH Women in Hypertension Research Committee are not eligible to be nominated.
