Atherosclerosis and related diseases are a major health concern worldwide. The European Atherosclerosis Society's goal is to provide a framework for concerted scientific and clinical discussion of new developments in basic research, diagnosis and therapy of atherosclerosis. Our mission - to advance understanding, prevention and treatment of atherosclerotic disease.
EAS publishes Guidelines and Consensus Position Papers. The Society organizes an annual Congress for approximately 2000 delegates, and runs a programme of Advanced Courses for both basic scientists and clinicians. Its official journal is Atherosclerosis.
EAS Academy is the Society's new eLearning portal which offers a broad range of scientific and educational material in the field of atherosclerotic disease. The EAS website, www.eas-society.org, contains details of activities involving the Society and its members, and regular Featured Scientific Commentaries on topical issues.
Membership is open to physicians and scientists who carry out research in both basic and clinical science, in Europe and in neighbouring countries. Corresponding members, active in atherosclerosis research, are accepted from around the world.
