This program recognizes a new independent investigator working in hypertension or cardiovascular research who has significantly contributed to our understanding of the causes of hypertension and related cardiovascular disease. The awardee will be selected by the Council's Awards Committee from applicants who have submitted abstracts accepted for presentation at the Council on Hypertension 2015 Scientific Session , along with other materials.
This award is named after Dr. Harry Goldblatt, a pathologist who established the first animal model of hypertension in 1934. This model provided researchers with the tools to delineate the renin-angiotensin system of blood pressure control and, eventually, to design enzyme inhibitors for the treatment of chronic hypertension.
All abstracts and application materials must be received through the Council on Hypertension Scientific Sessions abstract submitter. Visit the conference website for abstract submission details.
(The deadline to submit has been extended to May 26, 2015.)
