The Butrous Foundation Young Investigator Award, sponsored by the Butrous Foundation, is a newly established award for junior investigators (under age 35). An expert review committee will select the awardees from the presentations (poster or oral presentations) at the annual PVRI World Congress.
The Award represents the Foundation’s strong support of young physicians and investigators who present their excellent research work at the annual world Congress and publish their research in Pulmonary Circulation.
The Butrous Foundation is a private foundation established in 2006. The foundation aims to motivate young people to pursue scientific careers by enhancing scientific creativity and communication skills. It aims to provide a platform for young people all over the world to participate in scientific advancements and to encourage them to express their ideas freely and creatively ( http://butrousfoundation.com/ )
