Research Unit

In creating the Research Unit, our aim is to enhance the quality of scientific research and educational experiences, and to encourage good research practice amongst King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences students and faculty. This is in keeping with the university’s ongoing commitment to innovative learning, scientific research, compassionate patient care, and community health promotion.

The findings of these research studies will enable our nation’s policy-makers to more accurately address public health concerns. The Research Unit will be a powerful tool to promote and enhance scientific research in the university.

It will also position King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences as the key leader in public health research in the entire Arab world.

The Research Unit offers a variety of research consulting services for current KSAU-HS faculty and students. The services are provided by a biostatistics faculty member from the department of epidemiology and biostatistics.
