Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) president Dr Mohamed bin Ghanem al-Ali al-Maadheed will inaugurate next week a new medical research centre at the Division of Medicine, University College London (UCL).
To be held at the Auditorium and Gallery of the Francis Crick Institute, London, UK, the opening ceremony will be attended by many scholars and public figures from around the world.
Located at the Royal Free Hospital in northern London, the Centre for Metabolism and Inflammation comprises a select group of scientists investigating the inflammatory and metabolic processes linked to chronic, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). It seeks to find more effective treatments for NCDs, which will be a breakthrough in the field.
In December 2017, Dr al-Maadheed was appointed as a Visitor Professor at UCL. This is a culmination of three decades of achievements he made in the medical and humanitarian arenas.
As a distinguished professor, Dr al-Maadheed is recognised for his remarkable academic status both in Qatar and beyond. He has extensive multi-disciplinary expertise that enabled him to make a big difference in many areas of knowledge.
Dr al-Maadheed holds an MA in Epidemiology & Health Planning and a PhD in Strategic Health Care Management from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
