Qatar Biobank (QBB) Projects

The QCRI-QBB collaboration was established in 2016 through a mutual exchange of clinical samples that was collected from participants who are Qatari citizens or long term residents to better understand the causes of a range of diseases that affect the population of Qatar leading to the discovery and development of new healthcare interventions. On a pilot project we have targeted T2D and Obesity analytics.

Next step will be focused on a multi-omics study targeting 10,000 clinical samples with proteomics and metabolomics data.
