Qatar Biomedical Research Institute (QBRI)Doha - Qatar
Qatar Biomedical Research Institute (QBRI) is a national research institute within Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU). QBRI aims to improve and transform healthcare through innovation in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the Qatari population and the region.
As a disease-focused institute, QBRI concentrates on applying integrative and multidisciplinary approaches to provide novel insights into the molecular basis of the Grand Challenges of breast cancer; type 2 diabetes; neurological disorders such as autism and epilepsy; and the development of novel biomarkers, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to facilitate early diagnosis, treatment and management of these devastating diseases towards improving personalized medicine and healthcare.
The Whitehead Institute is a non-profit, independent basic research and teaching institution recognized worldwide for pathfinding programs in cancer and AIDS research, developmental biology, structural biology, infectious disease, and genetics.
The focus of this research group is the biomechanics of the lower limb. For many years, our work centred around the kinematics and mechanics of the knee joint and its replacement. This expanded to include the hip and ankle joints, along with the analysis of human gait and ligament and tendon mechanics. Although our current work still touches on these areas, our main focus is now foot and ankle biomechanics and kinematic and mechanical compensatio
