|Collaborator Name||Institute||Research Area|
|Dr. Mario Falchi||Kings College London, UK||In this project we use metabolomics to try understand how the low copy number of the salivary alpha amylase gene AMY1 associates with the risk of obesity|
|Prof. Philippe Froguel||Lille University, France||This project aims at identifying biomarkers to predict T2D. Predictive biomarkers for T2D are essential for the implementation of strategies to prevent the disease or at least delay its onset.|
|Dr. Mohamed Dehbi||Qatar Biomedical Research institute||Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Cell and molecular biology techniques are used in this project to try understanding the role of DNAJB3 in insulin resistance and T2D.|
|Dr. Mohamed Chikri||Qatar Biomedical Research institute||MicroRNAs and insulin resistance|
|Dr. Shehab Khan||Hamad Medical Corporation||This study looks at the effect of a plant extract on the proliferation of colorectal cancer cells.|
|Dr. Fouad Azizi||Hamad Medical Corporation||This study focuses on the effect of a calcium channel blocker on the proliferation of Leukemia cancer cells.|
