Some of the United Arab Emirates University’s (UAEU’s) top researchers were celebrated at an award’s ceremony during the University’s Innovation Week. Prof. Mohamed Albaili, Vice Chancellor of UAEU, honored the distinguished researchers and said: "One of the important roles of the United Arab Emirates University is the production of knowledge, which is reflected in the growing scientific research conducted by the faculty members. The university has made this one of its strategic goals since developing the capacity for scientific research and innovation in areas of national and regional importance."
Prof. Mohamed Albaili stated, "I hope that the number of researchers who publish their research in the top journals will double next year. Nothing is impossible, and I thank the researchers in various scientific fields for their efforts, and the sector of Deputy Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Studies for supporting researchers.”
Forty-two faculty researchers from various colleges at the University published in leading academic journals around the world – such as Lancet, Middle East Critique, Scientific Reports among others. They were honored in order to encourage and motivate them to publish their research in the top ranked scientific journals, through the use of the SCOPUS database and (WOS) –a website for science. The research papers tackled several issues in medicine, such as genetics and cancer treatments, and in agriculture, science, economics, humanities, and engineering.
