- About EAS
Who can become a member?
Membership of the Society is open to individuals working or studying in basic and clinical research in the field of atherosclerosis and related diseases, and healthcare professionals with interest in this area.
Why should I become an EAS member?
Continue your professional development with EAS educational activities - Advanced courses & EAS Academy
EAS membership offers opportunities to deepen your theoretical skills and/or practical knowledge, which you can then apply in your own research or clinical practice. The Society organises educational activities such as Advanced Courses (many CME accredited by EBAC), and offers a wealth of online learning material, such as webcasts, videos and quizzes, on the Society's educational platform, EAS Academy. As an EAS member, you have access to the very latest uploaded material, EAS Academy's Premium content.
Stay well informed with EAS publications.
EAS membership makes it easier for those working in the field to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field. In addition to access to the Society's own publications of Consensus position papers and Guidelines, EAS membership includes complimentary access to Atherosclerosis Journal (worth ca. 300 €), and members receive by email newsletters and featured commentaries on topical issues.
Interact with leading experts in the field at EAS Congress.
The participants at EAS annual Congress are world leaders in atherosclerosis research and clinical practice, and the size and format of the Congress lends itself to networking and interaction. EAS members are encouraged to submit their findings as an abstract to Congress, where they can participate at significantly reduced registration fee (savings of up to 100 € compared to non-member fees).
Apply for grants and prizes as an EAS member.
EAS members may apply for the Society's travel grants to attend Congress, and, where eligible, may apply for the Society's Prizes.
Great value membership benefits at affordable annual subscription rates.
EAS' aim is to provide access to learning that will help our members to manage lipid disorders and to prevent and treat atherosclerosis. We keep our annual membership subscription rates low - 40 € (persons over 35) or 20 € (persons 35 or younger) - so that as many as possible can afford to become members.
How to become an EAS member
If you're not an EAS member and would like to become one, you should complete the application form and pay the annual subscription fee. Once your application is approved, and the subscription payment processed, you become eligible for membership benefits for one year.
