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.
