Diabetes is one of the greatest health challenges facing Qatar and the world today. It is therefore understandable that Diabetes has become one of the cornerstones of both the Qatar National Health Priorities and the Qatar National Research Strategy.
In keeping with its role as a national health research institute, QBRI is actively pursuing research into Diabetes, aiming to clarify our understanding of both the social and molecular causes of Diabetes, and to lead the way in the development of novel treatments and therapies for this globally increasing problem.
Research Interests: Understanding the molecular effects of Diabetes and the development of novel therapies and treatments
The research goal of QBRI Diabetes Center is to pursue fundamental knowledge by fostering an active research environment focused on identifying the molecular and biophysical changes, and lifestyle factors related to the development of both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, specifically within the population of Qatar. It will implement and sustain research protocols by fostering interactions and collaborations amongst researchers and health-care workers at regional, national and international levels.
