World Health Organization – IMEMR recognizes research efforts of Gulf Medical University Faculty

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, April 21 - 2012 @ 12:58

GMU’s commitment to the pursuit of new knowledge in the fields of medicine and allied health sciences and medical education has resulted in the conduct of 5 internally-funded and 7 externally-funded research projects leading to 49 publications and 78 presentations in local and international forums in the past three years.

GMU has achieved yet another milestone! The Proceedings of the Third Annual Scientific Meeting held in November 2011 at GMU, containing full papers of the Oral and Poster Presentations has been selected to be one of the sources of the input of the Index Medicus for the World Health Organization Eastern Mediterranean Region (IMEMR). IMEMR is a comprehensive bibliographic database of more than 120,000 citations and full text articles from 521 health and biomedical science journals from 19 countries in the region.

The Fourth Annual Scientific Meeting of GMU is scheduled in November 2012 at the Al- Jurf campus of GMU in Ajman, U.A.E. This annual event provides a forum for inter-disciplinary exchange of ideas among its members made up of clinicians, academicians, biomedical scientists and students and facilitates dissemination of the outcomes of their studies related to healthcare practice, medical education and research.

GMU Research Division organizes workshops and seminars on a regular basis for young healthcare professionals/scientists who wish to conduct research in medicine and other health related topics. GMU is planning to develop collaborative projects in partnership with multi-national pharmaceutical and biomedical companies, once the research facilities are in place.

GMU faculty has a proven track record in academia and health care established over the past decade. In the current year GMU has invested heavily into research for establishing an ultra-modern facility to undertake laboratory-based research and its application in clinical practice in areas related to molecular biology, toxicology and drugs and therapeutics.

According to the Provost, Prof. Gita Ashok Raj, “The time has come to lay the foundations of a research-based university for the future generations of health science investigators”.
