The SVS invites abstracts for the 2016 Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC). The one-day meeting encourages interactive participation of all attendees and emphasizes emerging vascular science. 
Scheduled the day before the American Heart Association's Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) Scientific Sessions and at the same venue in Nashville, VRIC is considered a key event for meeting and reconnecting with vascular research collaborators. Abstracts submitted to VRIC are simultaneously submitted to ATVB through a common submission system.

The abstract site is now closed.

Coming soon!

VRIC will be held at the Omni Nashville, located in the heart of downtown, within easy access of area attractions. Rooms for conference participants are available at a special reduced rate of $209 single or double and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis or until, Monday, April 11, 2016. Hotel Reservation Information.docHotel Reservation Information.doc
