The Dr. Bares Award is an international award granted to the best papers published on for experimental or clinical practice in the fields of gastroenterology and hepatology. We have held the competition since 1993, usually every two years.
To honour the memory of Dr. Rudolf O. Bares, the founder of the competition, the company’s general director of many years and a major supporter of gastroenterology, the competition was renamed the Dr. Bares Award in 2005.
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.
