Who can participate?

Anybody who is an adult (at least 18 years) and is either a Qatari national or long-term resident (lived in Qatar for at least 15 years) can contribute to Qatar Biobank as by offering around 3 hours of their time to give samples of urine, saliva and blood (about 60millilitres, or around the same volume as a “pocket sized” hand sanitizer gel), and having a series of measurements, such as height, weight, grip strength, blood pressure, body composition, heart and lung function.

Finally, participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire and provide some overall feedback on their experience at the Qatar Biobank center.

To become a contributor to Qatar’s healthier future, please call 4454 1177 or email takepart@qatarbiobank.org.qa.
