Path to Personalised Medicine (PPM)

In support of the Qatar Genome Programme and in collaboration with Qatar Biobank, the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) established ‘Path to Personalised Medicine (PPM)', a research grant programme aiming to provide personalized healthcare based on an individual’s genetic composition. Following genomic sequencing compiled by the Qatar Genome Programme, the grant aims to support experts and researchers in their mission to integrate personalized healthcare in Qatar.
