Impact of the Zayed Centre for Research

For many seriously ill children, research is their only hope. Scientists and clinicians in the Zayed Centre for Research aim to work together to fight children’s rare diseases. 

The cross-platform approach will focus on:

  1. Developing genomics expertise to advance understanding and improve diagnoses and treatment
  2. Pioneering regenerative medicine techniques to replace, engineer or regenerate human cells, tissues and organs
  3. Scaling up gene therapy approaches to correct genetic mistakes offering transformative and curative treatment for a wide range of complex childhood conditions

Over the coming years the centre will become a catalyst for global collaboration and unique national and international partnership opportunities. Research completed in the centre could also unlock invaluable treatments for more common and adult diseases, on a worldwide scale. 

Most importantly, the groundbreaking new centre will allow us to do more for children with rare diseases, saving lives through more accurate diagnosis and better therapies that will be tailored to each individual child in a personalised approach to treatment.
