Dr Pelin Golforoush, who is based at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute (Research Department of Preclinical and Fundamental Science), within the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science, has been awarded a place in the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) Young Fellows Programme. This programme is the Society's flagship educational and networking activity, where the brightest young members from all over Europe, over the course of two years, gain a broad and deep understanding of atherosclerosis, its many aspects and contributing factors. The participants will come together to present and discuss, to challenge and question, and to deepen their learning through interaction with faculty and fellow participants.

In addition, Dr Golforoush has been selected as a nucleus member of the British Atherosclerosis Society (BAS) Young Scientist Community (YSC). BAS YSC is a group of cardiovascular research scientists in their early careers who are actively engaged in the BAS. The mission of the BAS YSC is to bring early-stage researchers together by offering a vibrant and supportive network, to boost their future career in cardiovascular science through scientific communication, career development and communal activities.

Dr Golforoush said “I am delighted to play a part within the vast BAS and EAS communities and to represent UCL in the field of atherosclerosis. I am looking forward to the learning and networking opportunities from such prestigious programmes as well as being part of the decision-making process within both societies.”
