Prof. Dr. Gerd GlaeskeProf. Dr. Gerd Glaeske
In October 1999, Gerd Glaeske was awarded an honorary professorship of the University of Bremen at the Centre for Social Policy Research.

Gerd Glaeske was director for principal medicinal-scientific questions at the BARMER-Administrative Headquarters in Wuppertal. He became most prominently known as a critical monitor of the pharmaceutical market and its supply as well as a health policy expert. His evaluations of pharmaceuticals and of the quality of health care were often published. Gerd Glaeske was an important expert in the realm of statutory health insurance by regularly advocating for patient protection and transparent insurance information.

Above all, the University of Bremen paid particular attention to Glaeske’s work on the supply of pharmaceuticals. As a result, data from the Gmünder Ersatzkasse (GEK), which can be used within the framework of a cooperation project with the University of Bremen, are at his disposal. He will carry out this work at the newly founded research unit Health Policy and Evaluation of Medical Care at the Centre for Social Policy Research at the University of Bremen.
