International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences
To promote cardiovascular education of professionals and lay people and to recognize major cardiovascular achievements for both young and established investigators throughout the world.
The International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences was founded in 1996 and is head quartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Established by renowned Cardiovascular Scientists, Surgeons, and Cardiologists, the Academy provides the organizational structure for the world-wide sharing of research and education information in the field of heart health.
Although great strides have been made in improving the death rate from heart disease, heart attacks and related problems are still the number one killer. The Academy believes that a fundamental problem is the lack of transmission of knowledge to the public. Research has found answers but the facts are too slow in moving beyond the labs.
The Academy, through world-wide representation, builds connectivity and encourages networking through traditional means of conferences, workshops, journals, text and symposia, as well as consensus panels made up of advisory board members and other experts. The Academy continually pursues new information technologies which will result in more rapid and wider availability of the latest discoveries to help save lives.

From the Founding President
The challenge for the Academy and its members is to adopt a mind-set, which continuously raises the question of how new and existing knowledge, can be translated into prevention, improved diagnosis and therapy of cardiovascular disease. This approach offers the hope of a continued reduction in morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular diseases.
