About The Center
Thrombosis and Hemostasis are global problems with high prevalence among both men and women of all ages. Studies on the Saudi population have demonstrated high prevalence of venous and arterial thromboembolic as well as bleeding disorders with high rate of morbidity and mortality. According to the directives of the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) through its national strategies for scientific research in Saudi Arabia. The centre of Excellence in Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CETH) has been established in college of Medicine, King Saudi University.
The CETH will be one of the leading research centers in the area of Thrombosis and Hemostasis diagnosis, prevention, and treatment in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. This will be through conducting studies in several thrombosis and hemostasis research programs including: nanotechnology, biotechnology, stem cells, genotyping, clinical trials, pharmacogenomics, and other innovative research activities. Such studies will contribute to evaluate the problem of thrombosis and hemostasis in Saudi Arabia and achieve the objective in improving the quality of life in patients with thromboembolic disorders. It will also contribute to the transfer of technology and enhance partnership and interaction among governmental and private sector agencies in all related activities.
