A team from Qatar Genome Programme attended the symposium held by Sidra Medical and Research Center on the Molecular Interception of Disease, held on 6 and 7 November 2016 at the Qatar National Convention Centre. Local and international speakers at the forefront of research into disease interception gathered to share knowledge, advance research and explore opportunities for collaboration.
Disease interception is a preventive medicine concept. It involves identifying and addressing the root causes of disease through cutting-edge research, medicine and technology. If molecular symptoms of disease can be stopped or slowed before clinical symptoms appear, health outcomes may be transformed.
