Al Anoud Foundation

The College of Medicine received a 500,000 SAR grant for research studies on lung cancer from the Alanoud Foundation.  It is hoped that this external support can be turned into an annual award.

The funds from the Alanoud Foundation were split into two tasks:

  • Project one: Employ molecular biology to study and treat lung cancer in Saudi Arabia in order to provide better drugs and hence give better treatment results
  • Project two: Start an academic program so as to teach the medical profession about the best treatments for  Lung cancer in Saudi Arabia
