These awards recognize the important research relevant to the understanding and/or treatment of arterial diseases and seek to identify exceptional contributions to research. Nominations of studies published in 2011 in peer-reviewed medical literature are being sought.
Best peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) research awards categories:
Criteria are studies that provide a novel insight into the mechanism of lower extremity atherosclerosis; mechanisms of progression; detection of P.A.D. in populations; the impact of PAD on limb symptoms or quality of life; psychosocial effects of the disease; economic or health services impact; or impact of this disease on systemic rates of myocardial infarction, stroke, or amputation.
To nominate a study, please submit a description (150-300 words) of the features that make the research meritorious, a copy of the article and lead author contact information to email@example.com. Deadline for nominations is April 30, 2012.
