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 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.
