Women have complex biological systems, that are interconnected and tightly regulated. Some of these systems are also “unique” to their gender.

Recent advances in sequencing and omics technologies have enabled researchers around the world to assess these complex interactions with great depth.

Building large and diverse cohorts, integrating electronic health records and large datasets will enable precision medicine and transform care for women around the world.

As a women’s and children’s academic medical center, Sidra Medicine is leading the journey in Qatar in the application of precision medicine.

Sidra Medicine Research Department is proud to host its inaugural "Women in Science: The Journey toward Precision Medicine" on 28th of May 2022 in the hospital building auditorium. The in-person event will also be streamed online via Microsoft Teams.
