Prestigious medical research award

In the Publication category we present awards to published scientific research papers in the fields of gastroenterology and hepatology. An independent committee of specialists evaluates the submissions and selects the three best publications for the award based on their innovativeness and significance to gastroenterology into the future.

In 2018 we also presented awards in the Idea category to innovative ideas that may lead to new applications for existing active substances based on hypotheses, preclinical or clinical research, individual observations, or experience with off-label use.

1993 first Dr. Bares Award

We’ve been recognising medical research since 1993

With each edition, the international Dr. Bares Award has enjoyed increasing attention from gastroenterologists and hepatologists throughout Europe. The last time we announced the three most important scientific papers in the Publication category was in 2022.
