SERVIER Award in Microcirculation

This award is offered by SERVIER (donation 4,000 €) in partnership with the European Society for Microcirculation for an outstanding publication on microcirculation/vascular biology research in the experimental or the clinical environment. The project proposed must be original research, of international relevance and significant value and be consistent with the main objectives of the ESM. If you or one of your colleagues have published a very significant study during the last two years, please apply (or nominate a colleague) for this award!
