Masters and PhD Students

Seven Universities in Lebanon have a Faculty of Medical Sciences: Lebanese University, American University of Beirut, Lebanese American University, Arab University, Balamand University, Saint Joseph University and Kaslik University. All 7 faculties of medicine are represented in the scientific committee. Research projects may be initiated by an investigator in any of these universities. The scientific committee will assist the investigator(s) to establish collaborations with co-investigators in the other universities.The data generated from the registry and the specialty-area research projects provide a valuable research medium to train and offer experience to graduate and medical students at those universities.

Eight research projects have been initiated, in conjunction with the launch of the registry. One of these research projects involves a PhD thesis entitled “Dietitian’s Role in Controlling Osteodystrophy” in the specialty area of Osteodystrophy. The project aim is to examine the effect of full-time dietitian on compliance and outcomes of osteodystrophy among HD patients compared to existing practices. The study started in March 2011, application for supplemental funding submitted to Lebanese National Council for Scientific Research (LNCSR). MSc students in dietetics at Lebanese University and Saint Joseph University are involved.
