Abstract submission is open to anyone interested in presenting a research poster on a topic pertaining to cardiovascular research at the CVRI Symposium. We invite you to submit an abstract and present a poster. Please be sure to register for the symposium if you plan to submit an abstract. This is a great opportunity to share your research and network with other cardiovascular researchers in the Baylor College of Medicine and in the Texas Medical Center community.

Indicate in the online abstract submission whether you are an undergraduate student (undergrad, post-bacc, or high school student), graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, clinical fellow/resident, or junior faculty (instructor or assistant professor). The appropriate category must be selected to know who will be eligible for each award category during the poster presentation sessions the day of the symposium. Only trainees and junior faculty are eligible for awards. Awards (a plaque and cash prize) will be announced and given to the top poster presenters from each category.

Note posters can be in any area of cardiovascular research including, but not limited to:

  • Coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, ischemia
