“This fellowship aspires me to contribute to the development of research in Qatar, to publish further research articles in high impact journals, and to participate in international conferences in which I represent my country,” al-Asmakh noted.
CHS dean and director of QU Biomedical Research Centre Dr Asmaa al-Thani said: “Human development is one of the essential pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to enhance the Qatari society and to support its citizens.”
“Our goal in participating in such scientific competitions and research forums around the world is to uplift the scientists who greatly contribute to advancing the healthcare sector through their creative scientific findings,” Dr Asmaa added.
