Further to 3 successful annual congresses since 2014, the 4th MEMBS Congress 2017 was hosted by Zayed University, Abu Dhabi, UAE under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Lubna Bint Khalid Al Qasimi.
The excellent organisation, the presence of an elite scientific and professional community as well as the world-class venue added a delightful atmosphere for the those who came to lead, teach, contribute, learn or witness the success of such event.
The variety of topics in the wide spectrum of molecular applications in medicine, research and industry attracted healthy debates and wealthy practical across-borders collaboration ideas for implementation towards advancing healthcare, science, education and life in the middle east .
