The ISHR has made it a priority to promote training and career development opportunities for early career investigators (ECIs) in the cardiovascular sciences at all stages, from students, to post-degree fellows, to early- and mid-level faculty. All of us at the early career stage face unique challenges, and the ISHR is committed to supporting and assisting us. In the ISHR North American Section (NAS), we have formed an Early Career Investigator (ECI) group of junior and established cardiovascular researchers. Our mission is to promote career development and scientific interaction among all ECIs of the ISHR. 

The major goal of the ECI Committee is to develop a networking and professional development platform that brings together early stage investigators and established researchers in the field. At the annual ISHR-NAS Meetings, the ECI Committee organizes a special ECI pre-conference day consisting of several events, including a scientific session, social event, and networking opportunities with senior investigators. ECIs can submit abstracts for consideration for oral presentations of their work at this pre-conference session. The selection is based on the merit of the submitted abstract.
