WCMC-Q Research Program
The Research Program

In line with the national vision of Qatar and Qatar Foundation, the goal of the research program at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) is to establish a Center of Excellence in Basic, Translational and Clinical biomedical research with a world-class infrastructure, and outstanding scientists to target the most pressing health needs in Qatar and the region.

Establishing a robust research infrastructure and knowhow at the basic, translational and clinical levels generates a better understanding of diseases important in the Qatari and regional populations, including diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome; associated cardiovascular complications; and neurogenetic abnormalities. In collaboration with our partners Hamad Medical Corporation, Sidra Medical and Research Center, and the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, we hope to improve our understanding of disease factors specific to the local population, to impact the efficiency and adaptability of health care delivery, and to usher in the era of personalized medicine in Qatar.
