The ISHR has made it a priority to promote training and career development opportunities for Mid-Career Investigators (MCIs) in the cardiovascular sciences at all stages, from Senior Assistant Professor to Associate Professor, to mid-level and full-faculty. Each person at the mid-career stage — with 8+ years of experience and single R01 Funding — faces unique challenges and the ISHR is committed to supporting and assisting them all. The ISHR Leadership has established the ISHR-MCI council for the North American Section (NAS) as well as the International MCI council during early 2019. The NAS MCI, in collaboration with the International MCI council, has successfully conducted initial events at the 2019 ISHR World Congress held June 2 – 7, 2019. The MCI members of ISHR include Early and Advanced Associate Professors in cardiovascular research. Our mission is to promote career development and scientific interaction among all MCIs of the ISHR.
The major goals of the MCI include enhanced career development, collaborative research, collaborative funding, and inter-disciplinary research among MCIs across the globe. Annual meetings/social events among MCI during the ISHR conferences will form a platform to have vibrant discussions on research interests, development of collaborations, as well as career advancement. We believe that career opportunities and professional growth would enhance among the MCIs through the 2020 ISHR Conference and hence we hope that ISHR leadership will continue providing opportunities to actively participate, presenting lectures and chairing/co-chairing sessions.
