Conference >  Poster and Young researcher prize session
The poster and Young Researcher Prize sessions aim at presenting the research works of young PhD and/or fellows in order to support and boost research in the field of vascular biomaterials. Since 1999, the ESVB scientific committee has started the «Young Researcher Prize» to recognize innovative and outstanding research work of young researchers early in their careers, in the field of vascular biomaterials.
