Sultan Bin Khalifa International Thalassemia Award

Dr. Mahmoud Taleb Al Ali Recent advances in science & medicine have deciphered that the human genome is estimated to have 20,000 to 25,000 genes that serve as a blueprint for building the proteins synthesized in our body.  Over 4,000 genetic diseases are currently identified - most are very rare, but some common and are relatively widespread, especially within certain ethnic groups. Thalassemia & Hemoglobinopathies stands out as the most common genetic disorders known to mankind.
