At the opening of the 11th International Medis Awards, the President of the International Scientific Committee Prof. Borut Štrukelj, MSc Pharm, PhD, from the Department of Pharmaceutical Biology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana, said:

"I encourage doctors and pharmacists who conduct research alongside their regular clinical practice to apply. I believe that by doing so, you will increase the visibility of your research and clinical work in the scientific community.
