The Neurological Disorders Research Center (NDRC) at QBRI focuses on
research in neurological disorders of high
prevalence in Qatar and pan-Arabic region, to elucidate the
underlying molecular mechanism for diagnosis and therapeutic
interventions. These disorders are diverse and range from
neurodevelopmental diseases, such as autism spectrum disorder
(ASD), intellectual disability (ID), and epilepsy, to
neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and
Parkinson’s disease (PD).
The NDRC is a pioneer neuroscience center in Qatar and the region
that aims to study neurological disorders of
significant importance. Furthermore, the NDRC has the potential to
greatly impact the visibility of neurological
disorders in Qatar and the surrounding region, not only by bringing
new treatments and hope to patients, but also by
significantly accelerating the pace of therapeutic development using
technologies, such as experimental disease
modeling, biomarker analyses, gene therapy, and stem cell biology.
The key vision of the NDRC is to develop an international center of
excellence from basic to applied research in
neurological disorders and establish strong partnerships with
existing academic research groups, government
research-funding agencies, and the healthcare sector.
