Qatar home to world-class biomedical research program
Date:9/15/2009

ted to participate in the official launch of this bio-medical research initiative. Qatar Foundation's aim is to establish Qatar as one of world's leading research and intellectual centers through partnering with international and regional organizations as required and through being a key partner in the drive towards a Knowledge Based Economy. This is one major strand of that overall strategy and bio-medical research will play a vital role in the development of the country's research capability. To underline the importance of research to Qatar, 2.8% of the GDP has been allocated for research programs, which positions Qatar among the top 10 countries worldwide with the highest GDP contribution to support Research and Development."

Interim Dean of WCMC-Q Dr Javaid Sheikh said: "This is a significant investment in biomedical research which forms the second leg of our triple mission of education, research and clinical care. We are embarking on a long term plan which will play a key role in building biomedical research capacity and knowledge for the first time."

"We will be working closely with our partners such as Qatar Foundation, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), the National Ministry of Health, Sidra Medical and Research Center, Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP) and our colleagues in our parent campus at WCMC in New York. Eminent researchers and faculty there will be playing major roles in establishing this program."

"We have already embarked on two proof of concept research projects. The first one compares variations in gene expression levels in the airways of smokers and non-smokers, whereas the second one assesses the clinical care of diabetes and cardiovascular illnesses in Qatar. In addition, we have initiated the process of developing core capabilities in our research laboratories, including the genomics and proteomics cores, computational biology and biostatistics core, a vivarium, a microscopy core, and a basic laboratory supp
