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 industry supporters, emphasizing their shared vision for the advancement of knowledge and recognition of achievement. The Society is most grateful for this generous support.

ISH Award of Excellence for Research in Cardiovascular Health and Disease in Women


The ISH Women in Hypertension Research Committee established this award in 2018 to recognise and encourage research in cardiovascular health and disease in women.


This award shall be made biennially to a person who, in the opinion of the ISH Women in Hypertension Research Committee and ISH Awards Committee, has demonstrated a track record of excellent research in the field of cardiovascular health and disease in women and contributed significantly to advancing knowledge in this area.

The nomination should include full curriculum vitae, a description of how their research has advanced knowledge in this area (<500 words) and a list of no more than 5 publications, which are considered as important.

The Award must be collected in person at the ISH Biennial Scientific Meeting.


The nominator and the nominee must be members of the ISH. Nominations for previous winners of any other senior 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.
