The New Investigator Symposium is a FREE half day event that provides a forum for scientists and clinicians in training who have an interest in hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Participants should be younger than 40 years of age OR within 5 years after completing their PhDs/MDs. This is a unique opportunity to present and discuss, win awards/travel grants, make new friends, build research networks and establish collaborations that can last a lifetime. Most of all, this is an opportunity to hear about some exciting research conducted by young investigators from across the globe.
