Submit an Abstract


Vascular Biology

October 26-29, 2020
A Virtual Event



Biology of Signaling in the Cardiovascular System Workshop VI


Vascular Inflammation Workshop III

We are no longer accepting abstracts.  Thank you to those that have contributed to our 200 submissions.

Please follow the application rules included in the abstract submission guidelines.

New for the virtual setting - all abstract presenters will be required to create an ePoster (information will be sent to you by early September).  You may also be chosen to give a short talk (10 minutes) in addition to your poster or your poster may be included in a poster discussion.  

You may submit more than one abstract, however, the same abstract may not be submitted to both workshops.

The organizers will attempt to program all submitted abstracts. NAVBO reserves the right to reject any
abstract. Authors should indicate their preference for either poster or oral presentation, however, due to the limited number of slots within oral sessions, most abstracts will be programmed for poster presentation.

  • Use Arial font, 10 point
  • Abstract titles are limited to 200 characters (including spaces)
  • Abstracts are limited to 1,750 characters (including spaces)
  • DO NOT include the title, authors or author affiliations in the body of the abstract
  • Enter each co-author into the database, be consistent with affiliations and include co-authors' emails, cities, states and countries
  • Additional instructions available here.

For Junior Faculty

If you are within five years of your first independent investigator position and are submitting an abstract to Vascular Biology, consider applying for the Springer Junior Investigator Award.  See here for details and criteria.
