- About EAS
The European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) was founded in 1964 with the aim of “advancing and exchanging knowledge concerning the causes, natural history, treatment and prevention of atherosclerotic disease”.
For more than 50 years the Society’s expertise has been used to teach clinicians how to manage lipid disorders and how to prevent atherosclerosis. By offering to our members access to educational materials, and opportunities to take part in Congress and courses, and by providing a forum in which new developments can be discussed, EAS contributes to the development of knowledge in the field, and ultimately to the improved treatment of persons with cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders.
In recent years the Society has made a particular effort to recruit young scientists and clinicians also from other related disciplines.
What we do
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.
EAS is active in the publication of Guidelines and Consensus Position Papers, and its official Journal is Atherosclerosis. Through a regular series of Featured Commentaries EAS puts into perspective topical issues of relevance to our members.
EAS Academy is the Society's online e-Learning resource, containing a range of educational material and self-teaching programmes.
