International Society of Hypertension

New Investigators Network

Our Fellows Work

Our Fellows Work was introduced to increase the visibility of the scientific work and findings of new investigators and trainees globally. With this initiative, we provide a source of information for our Fellows to help them develop collaborations and strengthen their scientific networks.

Emerging Leaders and Research Fellows as members of ISH are encouraged to nominate their recent best publication by contacting the Secretariat. This can then be highlighted on the ISH website and social media platforms.

Please note the following nomination criteria:

  • The nominee should be an ISH member (Emerging Leader or Research Fellow) and be listed as either first, second or lead author on the nominated publication
  • The nominated publications should be within the last two years
  • The nominated publication should be related to the field of hypertension and associated comorbidities and can cover basic, translational, clinical and population health research.

Nominees will be required to submit answers to 4 questions describing the findings from their recent work and are encouraged to provide a short video if possible. Examples of previous entries are shown below.

The nominations will be reviewed by members of the NIC committee and selected nominees will be advised by email when their work is published online.

To nominate yourself, a friend, or colleague to be highlighted in a future Our Fellows Work feature - please email the ISH Secretariat: secretariat__AT__ish-world__DOT__com.
