WCM-Q Welcomes Next Generation of Qatari Scientists

Four talented young Qatari graduates have joined the Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals at Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar (WCM-Q) where they will learn the skills required to pursue a successful career in research.
The six-month training program runs from January to June each year and provides comprehensive instruction and work experience to recent Qatari graduates in WCM-Q’s state-of-the-art laboratories. Working with WCM-Q’s world-class research scientists, the interns learn a wide variety of competencies including practical lab skills, how to undertake clinical research and research administration.

This year’s interns are Khaloud AlTurki, a sociology major from Qatar University; Naira AlThani, a biology graduate from Qatar University; Moza AlKuwari, a biomedical science graduate from Qatar University and healthcare management graduate from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland; and Njoud AlNaama, a biology graduate from Cornell University.

Not only does the Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals offer a solid grounding in the basic skills required to work in the research field, it also gives the interns the opportunity to contribute to real research projects being conducted at WCM-Q.

WCM-Q also runs internship programs for high school and college students with an interest in research: applications are now being accepted online for the Research Internships for National High School Students and the Research Internships for National College Students.
