KAIMRC’s Medical Genomics Research Department (MGRD) is poised to carry out cutting-edge research aimed at addressing medical problems with an emphasis on the people of Saudi Arabia. This department is equipped with the latest technologies to facilitate next-generation sequencing, microarray, cell culture, DNA sequencing, real-time PCR and other molecular biology-based research. Its major areas of research are in the fields of human genetics, medical genomics, cancer genomics, hepatology and cellular/gene therapy.

It is composed of the following core facilities:

Next Generation Sequencing
Microarray
Gene Cell Therapy
Sanger Sequencing
Real-Time PCR

The Department of Medical Genomics strives to produce high-quality research of translational value. This is manifested by its consistently high performance in the task of publishing papers and generating databases. A very high-capacity biobank is a hallmark of this department. Training of individuals and groups as well as collaboration are a necessary part of medical genomics. There are several collaborations in progress, both inside and outside National Guard-affiliated institutions, including both the hospital and university.

MGRD is expanding its research base to include new scientific areas that can advance KAIMRC further into the arena of medical research.
