It is with great sadness to announce the decease of Dr. Tomer Adar, Member of the UEG E-Learning Team.
UEG and European Gastroenterology has lost an inspirational colleague. Tomer Adar was successful in combining clinical gastroenterology with scientific research. He led several scientific projects including the development of a dual energy-based CT protocol to assess Crohn's disease, the role of Eotaxin-1 in IBD and demonstrating that portal hypertension has an inflammatory component. Tomer was member of the Young Talent Group in UEG and later joined the UEG E-Learning Team where he developed and launched the successful Mistakes in... series. He was on secondment at Massachusetts General Hospital when he suddenly became unwell. We are deeply saddened by the untimely loss of our dear friend and colleague, and extend our deepest sympathies to his family, and to all who knew him.
On behalf of UEG
