| FROM THE IAS PRESIDENT'S DESK |
We are looking forward to the upcoming International Symposium on Atherosclerosis (ISA2015) in Amsterdam, the
Netherlands which will present many opportunities for scientists at all points in their careers to learn from the
experts, interact with mentors and mentees, exchange ideas, develop and encourage collaborative enterprises,
and increase the knowledge base of the field. Please join us next month in Amsterdam, May 23-26, 2015!
The IAS continues to support early career scientists interested in research that will then benefit their home
countries, laboratories, clinics, and ultimately our patients through the travel grants that will be presented during
the upcoming ISA2015 next month and through the IAS Visiting Fellowship Award program.
The International Atherosclerosis Society is happy to announce a new series of educational activities in the MENA region promoted by the IAS in conjunction with the Oman Society of Lipid & Atherosclerosis (OSLA).
The first activity was the residential IAS-OSLA Course "Lipid Metabolism and Cardiovascular Risk" held in Muscat, Oman, on 8-10 February 2015.
The aim of the Course and those to follow is to increase the knowledge and experience of early- to mid-career, English-speaking practicing clinicians
from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, interested in the management of lipid disorders, diabetes, and obesity.
