Egypt to establish an Egyptian genome map
Egypt is bursting onto the precision medicine scene with a plan to create a genomic map of its citizens. The project is hoped to help Egyptians benefit from the potential of precision medicines, gene therapy, and future personalised treatments.
The technology behind the project will come from AGBL Egypt, the largest biomedical distribution group in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia region. AGBL strives to bring innovative technologies to facilitate development in emerging healthcare markets.
Mr Mohamed Abdel Hakim, the Regional Sales Director at AGBL Group said, “We take great pride in being part of the “Egyptian Genome Project” family, we believe that our expertise with similar large scale products for Population Genomics in the region will enable us to provide the necessary support to this ambitious project”.
