The award is in its second cycle; it will support competitive proposals of basic, translational, clinical or public health research. Priority is given to proposals in the areas of cancer biology, mental health and brain sciences, and cardio-metabolic diseases; including diabetes mellitus and obesity. 
 
MBRU researchers and investigators from recognized universities and healthcare institutions from around the world, are eligible to apply. To be eligible, external investigators should submit proposals in collaboration with an MBRU faculty member. Funding may be granted for up to 2 years. The research proposals will be peer-reviewed by external reviewers and interested applicants should apply by June 30, 2019. 
 
MBRU’s Dean of the College of Medicine, Professor Alawi Alsheikh-Ali stated, “We’re pleased to announce the second cycle of the MBRU-AlMahmeed Collaborative Research Award in collaboration with Dr. Wael Abdulrahman Al Mahmeed. The first cycle launched in 2018 attracted competitive applications from a total of twenty-five institutions across six countries. We expect the second cycle to attract a larger number as it will be open to investigators worldwide and to further expand the network of research collaborations at MBRU”
 
He further continued, “We are grateful for Dr. Al Mahmeed’s generous gift reflecting a conviction that the wider community is an essential partner for universities as we all strive to advance the science agenda in the UAE and the region”.
 
“The first cycle of grants was very successful. We expect that this cycle will be even more successful as we have opened applications to the rest of the world.
