genae, a global CRO based in Antwerp, Belgium, has opened a new office in Dubai, a joint effort with clinicians from the region, including cardiologist Dr. Ibrahim Al Rashdan.
"There is an exponentially growing demand for combining efforts between the Gulf region and the West, in terms of high-quality but cost-conscious clinical research," said Rashdan. "It combines the vision and guidance on evidence-based medicine of our group in the Middle East with the proven CRO model of genae in the Americas and Europe."
Rashdan was involved in numerous cardiovascular clinical trials as Principal Investigator and serves as course director of the Gulf PCR congress.
