Through the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the Biosciences and Bioengineering Research Institute (BBRI) seeks to reduce the prevalence of disease, and improve the clinical outcomes of patients, in the GCC and around the world. BBRI can also help to reach water-food-energy sustainability especially in marginal environments as experienced in the UAE.
The institute brings together leading international expertise to research disease, with a focus on those diseases having a significant impact on the communities of the GCC: premature cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and diseases of the nervous system. This is in addition to research in biotechnology with focus on food, water and energy security.
With state-of-the-art research equipment, BBRI offers individuals looking to advance their careers in biosciences and bioengineering the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed across many medical and biotechnology-related fields. With a focus on the entrepreneurship and commercialization, the institute also offers strong prospects for the successful transfer of new knowledge to the wider community.
Our vision is to be the leader in the Arab world and a globally recognized center of excellence in biosciences and bioengineering graduate education, research and technology transfer.
Our mission is to:
