Travel Awards - if you are a trainee (student, postdoc or equivalent) and a member of NAVBO or MCS you are eligible for a travel award. Please be sure to respond to the additional questions specifically for the travel award application. More information can be found here - click the Travel Awards-VB2023 tab.
Platform Sessions - each concurrent session will incorporate two to four abstracts. If you would like to be considered for a short talk (ten-minute presentation with five-minute Q&A), please be sure to submit your abstract to one of the topics listed below under Platform Sessions. You will be able to select a second choice if your abstract is appropriate for more than one session. Abstracts not chosen for oral sessions will be programmed as posters.
Instructions - clear instructions are included within the submission form. You will be able to enter and edit your abstract as often as you wish, but you must complete and submit it by August 1, 2023 at 5:00pmET. Your title should not be longer than 250 characters and the abstract has a 1,750 character limit (including spaces and punctuation). Although you can copy and paste from Word, some of your formatting maybe lost, so please review. We are using a new system that will provide you with a preview of your abstract (as it will appear in the mobile app) - be sure to use it to check for accuracy.
The meeting organizers reserve the right to reject any abstract. Abstracts are expected to pertain to an aspect of vascular biology and be of at least graduate school level (undergraduate students are eligible to submit abstracts).

Vascular Biology 2023 will feature several themes that are relevant to the vascular biology community: development and genetics, imaging, inflammation, matrix biology and bioengineering, microcirculation, signaling and translational research. Join us in Newport, RI.
Plan now to exhibit at this premiere event in the field of vascular biology. Meet with colleagues from around the world (on average 20-25% of our attendees are international) and display your latest technology, supplies and equipment to professionals in the fields of vascular and cardiovascular biology.
Vascular Biology 2023 will provide in-depth, cross-disciplinary approaches to subject matter. This meeting brings together leading scientists in cell biology, signal transduction, microcirculation, neurobiology, developmental biology, immunology, cardiology, molecular biology, as well as pathology and physiology who have an underlying interest in vascular biology. We expect 400 participants and approximately 200 abstracts. Usually half of the attendees are senior investigators and about 25% are postdoctoral fellows. The remainder of the attendees are a mix of graduate students and clinician-scientists.
We are joined this year by The Microcirculatory Society, whose focus will help to broaden the scope of our meeting program.
The meeting will feature prominent speakers, abstract presentations, poster presentations, round tables on Career Development and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and exhibits.
The research of our members covers the vast field of
vascular biology with focus on angiogenesis, development, vascular disease, vascular regeneration, endothelial and smooth muscle cell biology, stem/progenitor cells, cell signaling, vascular remodeling in disease, bioengineering, vascular matrix biology, inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension, endothelial-leukocyte interactions, vessel calcification, lymphatic biology – to name a few.
|Exhibitor Benefits & Promotion Included with your Contract |
Visibility within the Meeting Mobile App and Web Site
Integrated with the Posters (and coffee breaks)Scientific poster presentations and exhibits will be co-mingled and located adjacent to session rooms in order to provide exhibitors with the most traffic. Different posters will be presented on each evening.
