In the early days of its operation in Dubai Eastern Biotech is involved in the following activities;
A. Exploration of the Global biotechnological horizon to identify products and services which are most relevant to this region. We are actively researching the market to assess and identify various genetic tests that are available and we are negotiating with the companies around the world who have developed these tests to find the best possible way of offering them to the local healthcare providers.
B. Eastern Biotech & Life Sciences is also promoting a project in UAE to establish and operate a Centre of Excellence for the management of obesity. Obesity is a “disease” which affects more than 30% of the local population of this region. In partnership with CERT the company aims to further expand its offering in education and training to have an even greater positive impact on the UAE society and to ensure a regional and global growth cycle.
