“We are excited to soon be launching operations for the Research and Data Intelligence Support Center (RDISC) here at Khalifa University. This Center will provide state of the art facilities and will house experts in the fields of data analysis and research, to conduct and support research activities that will benefit the region, the United Arab Emirates, as well as providing benefits on the global scale.
The Center will provide a place for students, faculty and external stakeholders to collaborate, develop and visualize exciting new health research in a secure and innovative facility with the ability to support big data frameworks.
RDISC will have the capability to access, store and analyze new and existing local and global health data sets, providing a wealth of information and opportunities, adding to the existing culture of research and innovation here at KU. We look forward to launching RDISC and welcoming students, faculty and researchers alike to collaborate and share health research that will provide value regionally, nationally and globally.”
