Benefit Qatar’s communities?
As Qatar’s communities contribute personal and biological information about their health and lifestyle, Qatar Biobank will become a valuable national resource for Qatari health.
Information and samples contributed by participants will help researchers understand how lifestyle, environment and genes affect health locally. This knowledge will help develop medical treatment and disease prevention for the health of Qatar’s children and grandchildren.
Till now most medical treatments have been developed through the study of Western populations and there has been a lack of large-scale research based on populations in Qatar and the region.
COVID-19 RESEARCH PROJECT
This research contributes to answering these questions and helps scientists and researchers discover the treatment and vaccine for this virus
Make a lifelong contribution to Qatar’s future health by taking part in Qatar Biobank
Qatar Biobank was created in collaboration with Hamad Medical Corporation and the Ministry of Public Health to enable local scientists to conduct medical research on prevalent health issues in Qatar. Qatar Biobank will make vital health research possible through its collection of biological samples and information about the health and lifestyle of Qatar’s population.
Qatar Biobank will make it possible for scientists to conduct research to address some of the greatest health challenges facing Qatar and the region, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
