181! This is the final number of valid entries for the 8th International Medis Awards for Medical Research. We are once again overwhelmed by the amazing response in a year when many research efforts have stalled in the face of COVID-19. We are grateful to every doctor and pharmacist who submitted their research for the competition.

The International Scientific Committee will now select two finalists from each research field and announce them on 29 October 2021. We are already looking forward to the announcement to congratulate the best researchers with their tremendous contribution to the advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases.
