Scope of Research at CETH

It is beyond doubt that our country, Saudi Arabia should be at the frontiers of research in the region, we firmly believe that investing the effort, money and manpower in this area of great importance in gaining a world recognition for our centers of excellence in the world map of scientific research.

The CETHR is expected to provide a permanent mechanism for bringing collaborative teams including researcher scientists, academic staff, clinicians (hematologists, oncologists, family & community medicine specialists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists and obstetrics & gynecology specialists), diagnostic imaging consultants, diagnostic & molecular laboratory consultants, allied health scientists and specialists, clinical scientists among others, together at KSU under the umbrella of CETHR. They will plan, coordinate and conduct collaborative, multidisciplinary studies designed to provide deeper understanding of the diagnosis, management, therapy and prevention of thromboembolic disorders and to optimize the health and wellbeing of patients at risk in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. The CETHR will provide opportunities forgraduate and undergraduate students to engage in biomedical and clinical research and learning processes and activities and receive training in scientific procedures related to specific programs in the area of thrombosis research and the transfer of biotechnology and health care technology. Advances in better understanding of thromboembolic complications require novel multidisciplinary approaches. Such approaches will build on the current nucleus of Thrombosis and hemostasis research and clinical activities at KSU and will provide a synergy essential for interdisciplinary work in thrombosis. This will be achieved by adding more resources and support services together with academic staff from various departments of the several health institutes at KSU including: Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Computer Sciences together with the support of KSU Hospital and other health care providers in Saudi Arabia.

In the next FIVE years, the CETHR will articulate a plan, comprising of several research programs in thrombosis with exciting research opportunities to develop areas of excellence in biomedical and clinical research and contribute to putting KSU among leading universities in the region. In addition, it will achieve part of the objectives of the MOHE Strategy to enhance Scientific Research in Saudi Universities and the Kingdom. For achieving the vision, mission and goals of the CETHR, in the coming five years through the following FIVE Research Programs that exemplify the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and are proposed as part of CETHR:

Medication errors can happen anywhere, but errors in prescribing remedies injure hundreds of men in the United States. You can buy medicaments from the comfort of your desktop. Usually, both men and women are affected by sexual dysfunctions. Matters like “buy kamagra” or “kamagra online” are so pops for last year. When you get drugs like Viagra you have to ask your physician about “kamagra 100mg oral jelly“. Other matter we must is “undefined”. Absolutely, sexual disorders can help melancholia and, even more importantly, can affect the quality of being. So if you are experiencing sexual problems, it is essential to see a qualified doc straight for a complete bodily examination. You have to be very much circumspective while planning to order medications like Viagra.
