The University has created the Natural and Medical Sciences Research Center (NMSRC) as one the means to deliver its research strategy’s objectives. This successful project is a consortium of distinguished scholars with multidisciplinary scientific backgrounds including marine chemistry and biology, medicinal phytochemistry, analytical chemistry, organic synthesis, catalysis, polymer chemistry, computational chemistry, fragrance chemistry, spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy, microbiology, plant physiology, structural and molecular biology, biotechnology, tissue culture, genomics, proteomics, enzymology, cancer biology, stem cells, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. NMSRC possess state-of-the-art laboratories in the aforementioned areas.
NMSRC is pioneered and sustained by skillful young Omani scientists who obtained the required qualification to become future leaders in the above areas. Funding is sustained through different internal and external programs. Moreover, NMSRC has liaised with local government organizations and industries whereby new innovative projects have been funded jointly. NMSRC has also capitalized effectively on its international collaboration network that is evidenced by more than fifty active international collaborations worldwide. The research outcomes are evidenced more than 500 publications in reputable journals including patents, original papers, reviews, book chapters, books and conference proceedings.
