New Investigator Network
Member Spotlight

The ISH New Investigator Spotlight was created in 2011 with the mission of providing new scientists an opportunity to display their personal and professional qualities for greater visibility. The programme has expanded to include monthly spotlights from various disciplines, spanning from lab scientists to medical residents. These outstanding scientists, from across the globe, share several important qualities: a passion for cardiovascular research, a tremendous work ethic, and production of quality science.

If you would like to nominate yourself, a friend or colleague to be featured in a future spotlight email Brandi Wynne, c/o of the ISH Secretariat: - View nomination Criteria.

Applicants will be provided with a tailored questionnaire to help highlight their science and future goals.
