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.

The Society organizes an annual Congress for approximately 2000 delegates, and runs a programme of Advanced Courses for both basic scientists and clinicians.

EAS Academy is the Society's online e-Learning resource, containing a range of educational material and self-teaching programmes.

EAS-Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Studies Collaboration (EAS-FHSC), formed in 2015, is generating robust information in a global registry to accurately and reliably investigate the burden of both homozygous and heterozygous FH, how FH is detected and managed, and the clinical consequences of current practices on delivery of care and outcomes.

Grants and prizes

EAS members may apply for the Society's Travel grants to attend Congress, and, where eligible, may apply for and/or nominate a candidate for the Society's Prizes. The Society uses its resources to encourage scientific excellence, and to strengthen research in the field of atherosclerosis by providing opportunities to young, up-and-coming scientists and researchers to launch or progress their international careers.

Young Investigator Awards for the year's outstanding publications

These annual EAS prizes for young scientists are intended to recognize distinction shown by publications that contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of atherosclerosis and linked metabolic disturbances. One Prize is awarded for clinical research and one Prize is awarded for basic research. Each recipient will receive a prize of € 2000.
