What is SHE Biobank
SHE Biobank is a large and long-term biobank study in the MENA Region with the goal of investigating the respective contributions of genetic predisposition and environmental exposure to the development of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Community Health Worker Program
CHW or Community Health Worker is a program under MENA Bio Bank which facilitates outreach to the communities and the collection of health data needed for research and healthcare services.
In response to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, Silverberry Genomix and SHE Center have launched a genomic study to better understand the current pandemic and improve response to similar incidences caused by coronaviruses in the future. The new study intends to identify genomic susceptibility that alters either the rate of infection or the severity of the disease in response to the coronavirus exposure.
We are looking for partners in MENA Region to expand the study and focus on the region's needs. Contact Us for more details and explore partnership opportunities.
