Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions Travel Awards


 
The aim of the new ISHLT Annual Meeting Travel Awards is to:
 
  1. Remove economic barriers to participation in the ISHLT Annual Meeting for targeted groups
  2. Support the next generation of heart/lung failure specialists and ISHLT leaders
  3. Increase the volume and quality of science within ISHLT
     
The awards encourage attendance at the ISHLT Annual Meeting by presenters of accepted abstracts who may otherwise find it difficult to fund their attendance.
