Servier, with the European Society for Microcirculation (ESM), is offering a research award: the Servier Award in Microcirculation.

A €4 000 grant is offered every 2 years for an outstanding clinical or basic research publication in the fields of microcirculation and vascular biology. The call for applications is advertised on the ESM Web site and by related societies and journals.

The last winners were Jacqueline Fields and Marc Fleury (Switzerland), Jun Yin (Toronto, Canada) and Abigail Woodfin (London, United Kingdom).

This year the Servier Award in Microcirculation was received by Helga WIIG and Agnes SCHRODER during the 27th European Society for Microcirculation Congress in Birmingham (UK), July 21-26, 2013, in recognition of the article: ‘Immune cells control skin lymphatic electrolyte homeostasis and blood pressure’ published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation (2013).

For the next award, applications should be submitted no later than September 2014, and will be reviewed by a committee composed of 8 members including officers of the ESM. Scientists under 40 years of age on January 31 in the year of the award may apply.
