Returning Genomic Information

QGP started a project on reporting wellness and lifestyle traits based on analyzing whole genome sequencing data of QBB participants. Wellness and lifestyle reports include 29 different traits related to body weight, response to diet and eating behavior, food reactions, exercise, and metabolic health factors.

Pharmacogenomics

Pharmacogenomics (PGx) uses an individual’s genetic information to identify the right drug at the right dose at the right time. PGx information can maximize the therapeutic efficacy of the medications and prevent adverse drug reactions by identifying how specific genetic variations might affect individual responses to medications.

Clinical Alliance

The team is working closely with different clinical units at governmental hospitals and health centers to facilitate and co-ordinate clinical collaborative studies to ensure the achievement of quality research outcomes and integrate precision medicine into the healthcare system in Qatar.
