History

The Society evolved from, and maintains the traditions of, the British Atherosclerosis Discussion Group (ADG) which was established in 1958 as an intimate forum for free-ranging and detailed discussions on all aspects of the pathology of atherosclerosis. The BAS continues the tradition of the ADG of promoting full and frank discussion of presented papers: all speakers are encouraged to keep at least one third of their allotted time for discussions, which are always very lively.
