The 5th Wael Almahmeed & IAS Research Training Grants and Fellowships: Middle East and Africa

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-cerebro-metabolic 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.

Selected fellows will be awarded up to $10,000 USD to advance their skills at a host institution of their choice, preferably outside of their home country, for up to 6 months. The grant amount will be prorated based on the duration of research.

This fellowship is made possible by the generous donation of Wael Almahmeed, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is Dr. Almahmeed’s goal to empower the next generation of researchers and clinicians in the Middle East and Africa through this fellowship.
