Qatar Foundation: Pioneers of precision medicine in the Middle East

Dr. Richard O'Kennedy


The diminutive but resolute nation of Qatar is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the surge in precision medicine. Its small, genetically homogeneous, and digitally-connected population, together with a strong health care system, fulfill many of the criteria required to make precision medicine successful. Supported by the Qatar Foundation, numerous programs are underway that will benefit the population of Qatar as well as the Middle East region as a whole. Qatar is on track to grow as an important player in health care as it looks to collaborate and share its rich data with both neighbors and international partners.
