Early and Mid-Career Researchers

In 2018 the Sydney Cardiovascular Symposium will incorporate EMCR focus events for cardiovascular clinicians and scientists in NSW, recognising the excellence of our younger researchers. This is also a means to foster collaboration and interdisciplinary research across the state.

The Symposium will include several international plenaries interspersed with talks chosen from abstracts submitted by EMCRs. We will have sessions devoted to basic science and clinical/public health research, several moderated poster sessions, and a dedicated networking poster session judged by our international and national invited speakers.
