Young Researcher Prize
10 Oral presentations are expected this year.
A scientific committee will select abstracts that will be presented during the “Young researcher prize session”.
Do not worry, if your research work is not selected for an oral presentation. It will be presented as poster that will be discussed in a specific session.
We encourage any research in a field of vascular biomaterials 1500€, 1000€ and 500€.
The prize of 3000 € will be shared among 3 best communications made by a young researcher or a young medical physician in the field of vascular biomaterials.
This Year the jury will be composed of:
This year the prize is endorsed by the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research, France), and will be offered by Alsace Biovalley and Pôle de Compétitivité Fibres, France.
To participate, researchers should be less than 35 years-old. They have to send their abstracts before March 15 th, 2013.
