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.

The SERVIER Award in Microcirculation 2011 was presented to Dr Abigail WOODFIN (William Harvey Microvascular Research, Queen Mary University of London, UK), in recognition of his publication:
