Each poster presenter participating in this poster competition will be interviewed by at least two judges.  Judges will view posters online prior to the meeting and talk with presenters during the presenters' required hour.  Awards will be based on both the appearance and content of the poster as well as the conversation with the judges.  Judges will not identify themselves as judges.

Recipients will be announced on the final morning of the meeting prior to the last session on October 19.

 

From time to time, NAVBO provides Travel Awards to our Trainee members to attend other meetings including certain Gordon Research Conferences, the Gulf Coast Vascular Research Consortium and others. When awards are available, information will be included here and in the NAVBO NewsBEAT.

Advancing Young Voices through Diversity and Inclusion

Student Memberships are available for those who identify with a group that is underrepresented in vascular biology.

NAVBO is providing a funding platform to support diversity and inclusion efforts in the vascular biology community at the undergraduate and graduate student career stages.

The North American Vascular Biology Organization (NAVBO) provides a forum whereby members disseminate and share information related to the scientific field of vascular biology, ensuring the translation of knowledge from basic science to clinical practice. NAVBO supports and organizes meetings, workshops, online events and maintains a website linking the vascular biology community. We actively recruit trainees as members and support their growth and career.

We would like to increase diversity and inclusion within the vascular biology community, expose more young scientists to the field of vascular biology, and bring more trainees into this collaborative community. Therefore, we are extending this offer of free membership to students who are members of populations that are not well represented in vascular biology, including but not limited to Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Indigenous Peoples of America/Native American (including Native Hawaiian and Alaskan), and LGBTQ+.  We would also like to extend this offer to students who may be at a financial disadvantage and would benefit from this opportunity.

In order to take advantage of this offer, complete this application form. Students will need to upload their CV and a letter from their supervisor, confirming their status as a student.

Vasculata Scholarships will be available to assist attendees in need of funding.  More information will be available in March for the 2023 Vasculata.
