Coronavirus: UAE scientists unite in battle to contain Covid-19
Leading scientists have joined forces in Abu Dhabi to tackle pressing healthcare problems presented by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Citizen Science is a collective of 20 UAE scientists, researchers and engineers invited to come up with innovative solutions to ease medical pressures exerted by the pandemic.
Led by the Technology Innovation Institute, a research centre in Abu Dhabi, experts will focus on improving access to personal protective equipment, ventilators and rapid testing kits.
“This disease does not discriminate, know boundaries or care about humanity,” said Dr Mohamed Al Teneiji, the Emirati chief research officer.
“We cannot fight it with rhetoric or resolve, we must act.
“Simply, innovating new ways of producing and supplying our frontliners and patients with more efficient medical equipment could be the difference between life and death for many thousands of people.
“Citizen Science has banded together to bring new solutions to the operating table.”
