American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Awards

Applications are open for the American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Awards (YIA) 2023. The YIA competition encourages and recognizes young scientific investigators of promise, upon whom progress in the field of cardiology is dependent.

Submit cutting-edge research in the following categories:

  • Clinical Investigations: The primary objectives of submissions to this category should be applicable to clinical medicine in patients. Studies suitable to this category include a broad range of approaches such as observational cohort studies, biomarker studies, imaging studies or small clinical trials, with study endpoints that may range from clinical outcomes to in-vivo physiologic assessments.
  • Basic and Translational Science: The primary objectives of submissions to this category should relate to molecular or physiologic mechanisms of disease or treatment. This category includes studies that utilize human tissue or animal models to address mechanisms of disease or mechanisms of action of therapies, as well as basic studies examining fundamental aspects of molecular and cellular regulation. Human studies using molecular physiologic or biochemical approaches that focus on the interface between basic and clinical aspects of cardiovascular disease should also be submitted here.
  • Outcomes Research: The primary objectives of submissions to this category should address topics relevant to health outcomes, health service research, quality of care, population health or epidemiology. This includes research that results in innovative healthcare delivery, the value of new or repurposed system/clinical practices, cost effectiveness and population genetics/genetic epidemiology.


  • The first-place winner in each category receives $2,000.
  • The second place winners receive $1,000.
  • Four honorable mentions in each category receive $500.


  • Anyone is eligible to submit to the general abstract category, including non-ACC members and medical students.
  • Abstracts/cases that have not previously been presented either live or virtually at another professional society meeting or published prior to ACC.23/WCC are eligible for submission.
  • If an abstract/case has been presented (either live or virtually) only at an ACC state chapter meeting or ACC international meeting (ACC Asia, ACC Latin America, ACC Middle East), it is eligible for submission to ACC.23/WCC.


All submitting authors must file up‐to‐date disclosures on the ACC’s Disclosure System in order to enter the submission system.

Login to the submission system using your ACC username and password. Your name and ID number will automatically pre‐populate the system. The submitting author’s name must be the author who will present the abstract/case/LBCT, if selected. Notification of acceptance will be sent to this person.
