It is now widely recognised that small vessels play a crucial role in the mechanisms of various cardiovascular diseases including diabetes. Those conditions affect people of all ages and result in considerable disability and premature death being a major concern for a growing number of investigators worldwide. 

Therefore Servier is proud to support research in this field.

The SERVIER Award in Microcirculation is a 4 000 euros grant offered by SERVIER for an outstanding publication on microcirculation/vascular biology research in the experimental or the clinical environment.
