Abstract [en]

For the very first time, the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) sponsored the ISH New Investigators Symposium on September 21, 2011, in Orlando, FL, entitled, “A Global Hypertension Initiative: Trainee/New Investigator Session” as part of the High Blood Pressure Research 2011 Scientific Sessions. This symposium was cosponsored by ISH, the InterAmerican Society of Hypertension, the American Heart Association's Council for High Blood Pressure Research and the Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, and was organized entirely by the newly formed ISH New Investigators Committee (NIC; Figure 1) and young/new investigators (students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career scientists) in hypertension research.1 The symposium consisted of a half-day event with both oral and poster presentations of highly rated abstracts highlighting the most recent advances in hypertension research by young researchers. The scientific program was abstract based with >100 abstracts reviewed by new investigators as assigned by NIC. Top-scoring abstracts received an invitation for either oral or poster presentation based on their scientific merit. The program provided an opportunity for learning, networking, and socializing among budding scientists from around the world. More than 50 new investigators across 5 continents presented their research at the session, making it a truly “global” hypertension initiative, which was targeted toward young researchers.
