EAS Society & Governance

Reminder – two weeks left to nominate to Executive Committee

We are seeking members to stand as candidates for six Executive Committee positions.

If you've ever considered taking a more active role in the Society – now is the time! Talk to your colleagues - you can nominate one of them (with their agreement), or have them put your name forward as a prospective candidate.

There are a total of six positions open for election during 2020 – three officer positions - Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer-Elect, as well as three Executive Committee member positions.

Nomination is easy - we ask you to write down the reasons why you think the nominee would be a good candidate in a short letter, and submit that, together with the nominee's short CV, using the form on the Society website.

EAS needs your support to build a committed and representative leadership team - to develop and implement activities that fulfil our Society’s mission, to exchange and promote knowledge in the field of atherosclerosis.

Last day for nominations is May 25, 2020.

Open Access Lecture of the week:

System-level analyses of inflammatory & repair macrophages reveal an integrated circuitry of lipid & epigenomic changes

This week's lecture - by Professor László Nagy, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Debrecen, Hungary - discusses research implicating the immune system in muscle regeneration and repair.

Systems biology provides a holistic collaborative approach when investigating complex cellular processes, integrating data from many scientific areas to predict how these systems change over time and under varying conditions.

A combination of high-throughput, multiplexed, quantitative methods with computational modelling and statistical approaches is required, especially relevant in the context of macrophage function, given the versatility, plasticity and multiple roles of macrophages in the innate immune system. The rapid re-programming required for the plasticity of macrophage function depends on the changing microenvironment and metabolic processes

Understanding the transcriptional regulation of macrophage-specific responses to environmental cues has been aided by recent progress in genomics, both for transcriptional activation and, more recently, transcriptional repression. Mechanistic models that explain how transcription factors control macrophage activation and function provide an interpretative framework for the impact of genetic variability on macrophage-specific gene expression.

Future systems analysis of the regulation of specific genes involved in macrophage activation in response to different stimuli is likely to represent the next frontier for this field.

Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology:

The Society's CME-accredited online teaching programme on EAS Academy covers developments in clinical lipidology, with focus on its role in cardiovascular disease.

We have introduced an additional online module, so the entire Course can be completed online. So now you can complete the  Certificate of Excellence Programme in full and collect your CME credits without leaving home.

Save the date for EAS online General Assembly!

EAS Members' General Assembly will be held as an online meeting, June 02, 2020 at 16.00 CET. We hope that many members will take this opportunity to take part. The Agenda and materials for the meeting are now available. Note that there are proposed changes to the Society Bylaws.

A link to join the meeting and instructions on how to vote will be sent to members in the week prior to the meeting.
