On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Doha-Heidelberg Research Conference, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to another jointly organized research conference for healthcare professionals in Qatar.
This is the third time that we are organizing this conference in Qatar and in collaboration with Heidelberg University in Germany; this year’s focus is on rare diseases.
I am delighted that this annual event once again features a cadre of experts from Heidelberg and Qatar, who have convened to provide professional educational opportunities intended primarily for our physicians.
Hamad Medical Corporation has had a long-standing relationship with Heidelberg University Hospital for many years now and we are delighted to welcome their medical faculty to promote learning and professional expertise in the field of medicine and research.
Our aim is to make this an exceptional event for all healthcare professionals interested in scientific research and the latest evidence based treatment for certain rare diseases. This conference provides an ideal platform for extensive scientific discussions and professional networking. The conference will facilitate peer-to-peer dialogue and promote new collaborations between attendees from different organizations.
Your active participation is fundamental to making this special event a success.
