With a view to establishing a platform for advanced training, education and research in the field of GI endoscopy, Dr Amol Bapaye set up a Foundation for Research and Education in Endoscopy ('FREE' ) in Jan 2013. The purpose of establishing this public charitable trust was to enable the general public easy, widespread and convenient access to the latest non-invasive techniques in GI endoscopy.
