Sidra Medicine will host Qatar’s first Young Scientists Symposium on November 9. Titled ‘The Impact of Biomedical Research on Patient Care’, and chaired and hosted by young scientists Ahmad Al Shaibi and Fatima Al Ali, the symposium will bring together senior and junior scientists and editors of high impact journals to put the spotlight on how research can be applied to patient care.

Ahmad Al Shaibi, research specialist in Human Genetics at Sidra Medicine, said: “The Young Scientists Symposium has been structured to provide young scientists with the necessary tools and knowledge of applying their research within a healthcare context. It will feature practical elements and inspiration from experts and peers not only from Qatar but internationally as well. There are many young scientists who don’t yet have the skills or access to mentorship about getting their work recognised or reviewed in journals. Our symposium is looking to change that, as we want them to be more forthcoming and to get an understanding of what the end result of their hard work could look like.”

The symposium will feature keynote talks by: Dr Paul Bastard from the Imagine Institute, University of Paris in France, and Dr Markus R Wenk, the dean of the College of Health and Life Sciences at HBKU Doha. There will be a mentorship session by Dr Safia Danovi, senior editor of Nature Genetics, Dr Elizabeth Phimister, deputy editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.

The symposium is part of a series of events for Sidra Medicine’s Precision Medicine & Functional Genomics (PMFG 2023) conference, which will be held from November 11 to 14.
