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. Three finalists will be selected by the council's Awards Committee from applicants who have submitted abstracts accepted for presentation at High Blood Pressure Research 2013 Scientific Sessions, along with other materials. A winner will be chosen after the oral abstract presentations at the conference.
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 HBPR 2013 Scientific Sessions abstract submitter.
Apply by Wednesday, May 15, at 5:00 PM CST.
