Beer and Health Publication Award 2020
First winner | Out of many applications from all over the world, the Scientific Committee of the Beer and Health Initiative elected Vïctor Micó, a Spanish Postdoc at IMDEA Food Institute, as the winner of the Beer and Health Publication Award 2020.
The quality of his study titled ‘Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beer Modulate Plasma and Macrophage microRNAs Differently in a Pilot Intervention in Humans with Cardiovascular Risk’ was regarded as outstanding and very original. Dr Micó receives a monetary prize of EUR 1,000 and will present his research at the next Beer and Health symposium.
The Technical Secretariat of the Beer and Health Initiative made a pre-selection based on the application criteria. The studies that fulfilled all criteria were further reviewed by three members of the Scientific Committee based on the originality of research question; quality of study design, conclusion/discussion, and writing; and on the contribution to the scientific understanding of the effect of moderate beer/alcohol consumption on health.
As this first edition of the Beer and Health Publication Award was a great success, the Beer and Health Initiative hopes to be able to offer it again next year.
