Description of Fellowship

The 5th Wael Almahmeed and IAS Research Training Fellowship is designed to support next-generation leaders in the Middle East and Africa who are dedicated to advancing their clinical research and education in atherosclerosis and cardio-cerebrometabolic diseases. This initiative also aims to promote partnerships among researchers from recognized universities and health care institutions in both regions, fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing.
