QNRF PR 0 3144

Qatar National Research Fund cordially invites you to its Research Outcome Seminar (ROS) on “Catalysts and Catalytic Processes”. A substance that can speed up the reaction process without being consumed by it, catalysts are often perfect candidates to lower the activation energy or modify the mechanism of a process. Today, catalysis is significant in industry and industrial research and various catalysts are constantly being developed to meet economic and environmental objectives. A homogeneous or heterogeneous catalyst that delivers a different reaction with lower activation energy and better selectivity control can have a significant impact on process feasibility, on the environment, and

QNRF-funded Research helps provide better cancer treatment in Qatar

QNRF PR 0 1425

As far as cancer genetic studies are concerned, the Arab/Qatari ethnic populations have not been extensively studied which has led to disparate gaps in our knowledge of cancer predisposition genes in these populations. Among the different types of primary breast cancers, triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) remains the most important challenge and there is a significant gap in our understanding of the genetic, and environmental factors underlying its etiology and progression.
