A crystal installation featuring the profile of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has been unveiled in Dubai. The installation called 'Crystals of Hope' pays tribute to Sheikh Mohammed's role in supporting innovation and research and advancing the country's healthcare sector.
The installation features the names of 25 donors who have invested in medical research.
The unveiling came as the Dubai Ruler inaugurated the Mohammed bin Rashid Medical Research Institute, the UAE's first independent biomedical research centre, on Tuesday.
The Dh300-million facility seeks to conduct research to address the Covid-19 pandemic and other viral diseases.
